Huw Powell at Barton Hill Academy

Barton Hill Academy were thrilled to welcome Huw Powell to their school assembly, to talk about his series of books "Spacejackers" and inspire pupils to consider a career as an author.  Huw asked pupils to help create a new 'Spacejacker' character and with some inspiring suggestions from his audience, 'Skull Ben Medusa" - the Evil Pirate Queen - was created. Her snake-like hair and flaming sword, along with her heavy boots and bow-and-arrow, make her a true force to be reckoned with!  

Huge thanks to Huw for making his entertaining visit to the school - and looking forward to reading novels by these new, budding young authors!
