Inspired by his Freedom to Think campaign, Oxford Literary Festival favourite Jonathan Stroud challenges us all to get creative.

Joining him on stage will be other top talent from the books world including Lauren St John, SF Said and Tamsyn Murray.
Fire up your imagination as the panel discusses all aspects of creativity from things they made as children, to finding time for it in their busy adult lives and shares top tips for budding creatives. Help the authors prove their skills live on stage too.

St John is author of the multi-award-winning children’s series, The White Giraffe, Dolphin Song, The Last Leopard and The Elephant’s Tale. She won the Blue Peter Book of the Year for Dead Man’s Cove. Said’s first novel Varjak Paw won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize for Children’s Literature. He is also author of Phoenix. Murray is an author of children’s and teen fiction including the Completely Cassidy series and Instructions for a Second-hand Heart.
