Writer in Residence - Vivian French MBE.
We are greatly looking forward to welcoming Vivian French MBE as Loretto School’s first ever 'Writer in Residence'.
This initiative is funded by the Loretto Uniform Exchange (LUE). We are very grateful and look forward to all the opportunities this will create for Loretto Junior School and Senior School pupils.
Vivian is the author of a vast range of fantastic children’s books. She was first published in 1990, a natural progression after careers in the theatre, in counselling and in storytelling. Since then, she has established an enviable reputation as a writer of integrity and imagination, a writer illustrators love to work with, and a writer her readers want to meet. Vivian was awarded an MBE in the 2016 honours list for services to literature, literacy, illustration and the arts. She will be at Loretto from Tuesday, 16th January.
