Presenting Philip Reeve: Competition at RAMM
13 July 2018
Fans of the children’s author Philip Reeve are competing for the chance to help host the Question and Answers session after his 20 October talk at RAMM.
Author Philip Reeve
Author and illustrator, Philip Reeve is famed as the creator of the fantasy fiction quartet Mortal Engines. Since Mortal Engines was published in 2001, he has won many literary prizes. These include the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize in 2006 and the Los Angeles Times Book Award in 2007. Born in Brighton, he now lives with his family on Dartmoor. Universal Studios are currently filming Mortal Engines ready for release in December.
Open to children aged 13 to 18 years old, the competition winner will also get two tickets for the talk and a specially signed copy of either Mortal Engines or Railhead.
Entering is easy. RAMM’s Audience Development Lead Helen Hartstein explains “all you need to do is make a short video. In less than 2 minutes in length, you must introduce yourself, telling us why you’d like to help host the event and what your top question for Philip Reeve would be. You can make your video as simple or as jazzy as you like. We just want to get to know you a little bit. Once you’ve made your video, just fill in the entry form and upload your video. If you’re under 18, you will need permission from a parent or guardian.”
Mortal Engines and Railhead – far-future civilisations and adventures. A talk and Q&A with author Philip Reeve is on Saturday 20 October. Philip Reeve will focus on his work for older children and teenagers. Under 12’s must be accompanied by an adult; both require tickets.
It is as part of the Exetreme Imagination Festival.
