Hi! Welcome to my website!
My name's Alan Durant and, among other things, I write stories for children of all ages - from toddlers to teenagers. I also write poetry for children and adults.
Just click through the menu, and my world's your oyster!
I'm one of the tutors of the Chelsea Young Writers workshops at Clementi House on Thursdays from 4.30 - 6.30 (7 -11 years). Find out more at www.chelseayoungwriters.co.uk.
My next writing course in France will run from 26 - 31 May 2015. It'll be a lot of fun. Spread the word!
I'm on twitter now. Follow me at @alan_durant and you can read my blog about issues relating to writing for children at http://email@example.com
My next picture book, Daddy, I Can't Sleep will be published this summer by Random House.
Read Zone have republished my Bad Boyz football series, Barrington Stoke are issuing new 4U2 Read versions of Game Boy Reloaded and Game Boy Galatic and Walker Books are issuing Dear Mermaid for the first time as a paperback in May. Hurrah!
