ELIZABETH O'CONNOR

MEMORIAL FUND

The Elizabeth O’Connor Memorial Fund has been set up in memory of tutor Elizabeth O’Connor to assist young writers with free or subsidised tuition. Additional donations to this fund are welcome to allow us to assist as many children as possible.

 

Elizabeth made a massive contribution to the School for Young Writers, not only through her empathy for children and their writing but also because of her vast knowledge of language and literature. She taught all of us a lot about the nature of fiction, and, in particular, the work she did in teaching students to write and perform radio plays will be fondly remembered. Elizabeth’s beloved William Shakespeare wrote that the good that people do is “oft interr’d with their bones.” In Elizabeth’s case, the good that she has done for so many people will live long in memory, and in the skills that her students take forward into their developing lives.
