The National Literacy Agency in collaboration with Merlin Library organised a writing workshop and two school visits with renowned children's writer Rob Lloyd Jones earlier this month.

Rob Lloyd Jones is the author of several children's books, including the gripping murder mystery Wild Boy and the adventure series Jake Atlas.

On 3 May, a number of young Reading Stars participated in an engaging workshop with Rob Lloyd Jones at the National Curriculum Centre, Hamrun. During this session, Mr Jones shared with the pupils a number of practical writing strategies. He explored with them the essential elements that make up a good story.


On 4 May, the author visited the Lija Primary school, St Theresa College and the Zabbar B Primary school, St Margaret College. Mr Jones shared his personal experience on how he became a writer, and encouraged all students, especially reluctant readers, to strive to find and read books that inspire them. Following his presentation, the students had the opportunity to ask questions about his books and his life as a writer.

The National Literacy Agency thanks Merlin Library for organising Lloyd Jones' visit to Malta.
