The popular author, poet and after dinner speaker Deborah Leslie returned to Fraserburgh Academy recently to do a creative writing workshop with S3 pupils.

Deborah engaged the secondary school pupils with tales of her life and, through a couple of interactive sessions, got pupils to think of how they would approach characterisation in their essays.

Deborah organised pupils into groups and, using their senses, they described scenes and characteristics using a picture.

The author also spent some time in the base helping pupils who need more support.

Organisers of the visit said all three sessions went extremely well and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed Deborah’s visit.
