Inspiring Young Readers
An Interview with Victoria Bennett
The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.
We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with writer and publisher, Victoria Bennett. Victoria is an award-winning poet and full-time home-educating mother. Founder of Wild Women Press, she has worked for over 25 years using poetry and creative writing within the community. She is an experienced creative writing educator and her writing has appeared in magazines, online, in print, and within the game of Minecraft. A regular Industry Expert contributor to the online journal Create Hub, on the relationship of technology and artistic practice, she has collaborated with Adam Clarke for the last 25 years on a wide range of projects, from community arts projects to international engagement issues. Together they make The Wizard and The Wyld.
