AUTHOR paid a visit to St Edmund’s Girls School in Salisbury on Wednesday.

Julia Golding led a creative writing workshop for gifted and talented girls from years 7 to 9.

She also gave talks about the creation of her books and the inspirations behind them before ending the day with book signings where the girls could buy a signed copy of her books.

School librarian Liz Derry said: “It went very well. The girls enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot from it.”
