Posted on: 28/02/2024

Picture1We are thrilled to announce that on the 7th of March we will be hosting writer A.M Dassu for virtual workshops. 

The aim is to celebrate our shared love of literature and embrace the diverse range of experiences and reading interests in our student body and our community as a whole. 

A. M. Dassu is a multi award-winning writer of both non-fiction and fiction including the internationally acclaimed novel Boy, Everywhere, one of The Guardian’s Best Children’s Book of the Year. It has been listed for 25 awards including the Carnegie Medal, and has been noted by National Literacy Trust experts as one of 50 books every child should read. Her recently launched novel, Fight Back Her has already been listed for 23 awards including the 2023 Carnegie Medal. 

A. M. Dassu is a Director of Inclusive Minds, a unique organisation for people who are passionate about inclusion, diversity, equality, and accessibility in children’s literature. She is also one of The National Literacy Trust‘s Connecting Stories campaign authors, aiming to help inspire a love of reading and writing in children and young people.

A.M. Dassu grew up in the Midlands dreaming of becoming a writer but studied economics instead and worked in marketing and project management before realising her dream. She writes books across a wide genre, including non-fiction, that challenge stereotypes, humanise the “other” and are full of empathy, hope and heart.
