      •   Each writer presents a basic author session i.e. talking about their books, their method of writing, how the book is created e.g. illustration etc The second session involves the class returning to the library and interviewing the author with questions prepared in the intervening week by the teacher and pupils. The interview is then videoed and the DVD forwarded to the school. After the interview the children write up short critiques which are in the form of a short paragraph or illustrative comment.
      •   The childrens’ Crits, drawings and photographs will then be forwarded to the Scottish Book Trust for use on the website and will be made available on GLOW
