"Corvus, please tell us a story." Sitting on a suburban light pole, an old crow by that name would often hear those words spoken to him from other fur or feathered nonhumans of his region. They would come to sit or perch as near as possible to the elder bird, and wait for him to think and then tell a story about other nonhumans of the past or the present.

Write Out of the Classroom is a ground-breaking, highly practical book which provides teachers and creative writing tutors with great ways of tapping into the huge inspirational and educational potential of the richly diverse world beyond the classroom walls. Effective learning occurs when the process feels exciting, inspiring and ‘real’, and there is nothing more stimulating and ‘real’ than the real world itself. Working with groups in interesting and evocative settings can generate exceptional participant involvement. Well-led ‘locational brainstorming’ in such places increases vocabulary and produces an astonishing freshness of observation, ideas, language, plot and metaphor. Teachers commonly notice a quantum leap in writing quality arising from these sessions. Based on the author’s extensive experience in developing and leading out-of-classroom ‘intelligent observation’ and writing workshops, this unique book steers educators through the subtleties of guiding thoughtful data collection sessions in varied environments; selecting appropriate and motivational places and forms of writing, and running sessions linked to specific creative and factual writing tasks. The book covers the following areas and techniques and how they relate to out-of-classroom work: planning outings and choosing locations; leading language and ideas brainstorm sessions; descriptive poetry inspired by outdoor settings; ‘reflective haikus’, cinquains, and minimalist poetry; creating stunning plots and storylines; collective story writing; fictitious diary forms; descriptive travel writing; understanding poetry’s mechanics and sound patterns; assisting students with editing. This detailed, practical book also contains examples of remarkable student creative writing produced through these techniques, as well as photocopiable pages which include original examples of specific writing forms to model from, explanatory diagrams, helpful checklists and handy teachers’ ‘crib sheets’. Write out of the Classroom is the perfect ‘insider's guide’ to teaching and inspiring creative writing. It is an essential tool for classroom teachers in both Primary and Secondary schools, creative writing tutors, literacy co-ordinators and PGCE students, as well as leaders in residential centres and forest schools.

The personality and characteristics of Zeus can often be seen in tales that modern writers and filmmakers weave. The name Zeus still stands for the ultimate in power and authority, which is why it graces modern companies and their products. A study of the starry night sky reveals constellations named after the twin sons of Zeus. Indeed, if mighty Zeus were to look down at the earth today from his lofty Olympian perch, he may well be pleased at the impact he still has on the modern world.

Professor James Moriarty, prominent scientist, keen analytical mind, and a dabbler in less than savoury doings, is somewhat surprised when an unknown caller is shot by a crossbow bolt on his doorstep. Meanwhile the Professor's one-time associates, the journalist Benjamin Barnett and his wife, the former Cecily Perrine, are having their own troubles on the Continent. Things turn deadly when they find themselves in the midst of an attempted assassination of a German prince, and in Vienna, the younger son of a British nobleman—indulging in “The Great Game” of amateur spying—finds himself framed for the murder of his paramour and the assassination of an Austrian Duke. While a lesser man might be daunted, Moriarty is merely intrigued. With the unwanted help of his often nemesis Sherlock Holmes, Moriarty must connect the many threads of the mystery. But he is facing his most cunning opponent to date, and this is no game...
