Week #25 (19)

Don’t forget to release your comments!

For a young writer, getting comments is the reason they write so when Team 100 visit please make sure that you moderate the comments & publish them. Some Team 100 member have not seen their comments so have been worried they have been lost.


Visiting you

This week I visited Hastings Intermediate School in Hastings New Zealand. Sadly I wasn’t there in person. My trip to the southern hemisphere is next year. No, we used the wonder of Google Hangout & had a great session.

If you would like to make contact do let me know.

By the way, I will be in New York City from 26th – 28th June so if you fancy a visit in person, get in touch!

Week #24

Please stay safe

Please make sure that you only leave a first name or a nickname when posting as it is important to keep our young writers as safe as we can.


It was good to have the showcase back on it’s own page. If you have had a Terry Culkin toon sent do share them either below in the comments or on Twitter. They are too good not to be seen by the world!
