AN AWARD-WINNING writer and filmmaker has passed on some of his wisdom to pupils in Portishead.

Matt Dickinson paid a visit to Gordano School where he spent time with students in year seven to talk about his love of writing.

Matt has written the thriller series for young adults called Mortal Chaos, which is inspired by the scientific theory of chaos.

He has also travelled the world in his career working for TV and film, including the BBC and National Geographic.

The session gave pupils the chance to learn about the writing process and how to make their work fun.
