“The place where creativity, literature and children intersect

– that’s the place I’m most excited about.”

Childrens-Author-Suzannah-Fernandes
Yup – that’s me with a bunch of books on my head.

I’m Suzannah Fernandes, children’s author and former classroom teacher. The three areas I geek out about the most are creativity, literature and children. The place where those three intersect – that’s the place I’m most excited about.

And my aim is to inspire you and your young writers to be excited about that place as well.

Cultivating Creativity in Kids

Not just a fun thing to say out loud. Go on, I know you did.

Here on the blog, I share articles on teaching creative writing to primary school students, a peek inside my own writing process and provide hands-on picture book play ideas to encourage that love of literature in your little ones. These posts come out once every three weeks.

I’m also the creator of Two Little Amigos Publications, which currently produces the Cultivating Creative Writers range, with the aim to make teaching creative writing easier and more enjoyable.


Looking for teaching ideas and resources (or perhaps you are a writer yourself)? Check out the free library available only to my email friends.

Like seeing snippets of my writing process and the picture book play my little amigos get up too? Then Instagram is the place for you. I hop on there every Wednesday.

Want the latest articles and news about creativity, literature and children from around the globe? Facebook is where I share those.
