Making Stories with Paul Howard


Join us for a story making session with Author, illustrator and current Children’s Writing Fellow NI Paul Howard, perfect for kids ages 4-8. 

Paul will work with participants to craft an exciting new story for Paul’s wonderful characters, who children will recognise from books such as The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark.

In association with the Seamus Heaney Centre.

Children may also enjoy our session with Belfast Children’s Books later in the day, where authors will read stories and lead illustration sessions.

Paul Howard is an award-winning children’s author and illustrator, best known for illustrating Jill Tomlinson’s classic The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark and The Burpee Bears, a new picture book series from Joe Wicks. He has collaborated with some of the greats of children’s literature such as Allan Ahlberg, Michael Rosen, Anne Fine, Trish Cooke, Martin Waddell and John Boyne, and won numerous awards including a Blue Peter Award for The Bravest Ever Bear and The Primary English Award for The Year in the City. He publishes his own young fiction and picture books, most recently 1,2, BOO! for Bloomsbury.
