Join Sibéal Pounder for a fun character-crafting workshop. Find out all about how to put a new twist on established characters like witches or mermaids! Sibéal is the author of the bestselling Witch Wars. Her latest series, Bad Mermaids, publishes in summer 2017.

Sibéal Pounder previously worked for the Financial Times, where she researched the How To Spend It section and wrote the For Goodness’ Sake column – interviewing everyone from Veronica Etro to Vivienne Westwood. As well as Bad Mermaids, she writes about fabulous witches and feisty fairies in Witch Wars, her first and much loved series for Bloomsbury. Witch Wars has sold over 50,000 copies and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award.

In addition to this workshop, Sibéal will be reading from Bad Mermaids on Friday 21 July at 3pm.
