Joyce Harmer Author Visit to Southgate

Posted on: June 15th 2023

Year 9 students attended an workshop on Tuesday with acclaimed author Joyce Harmer who taught English at Southgate. Joyce's recent YA novel " How Far We've Come" has featured in several newspapers, including The Guardian and Sunday Times.

Our students were inspired by the author's advice: "If you want to write, do it now - don't wait for life to get in the way". Once they started writing, our students planned stories set in 1950s St Lucia, Cyprus in the 1970s, France in World War 2, Glastonbury Festival in 1968 and even The Great Fire of London. Looks like there will be more novelists from Southgate School in the future.
