Garry Burnett

Garry Burnett has been an English teacher, advisor and advanced skills teacher (AST) and a lead practitioner and head of department for over 35 years. He has written and lectured extensively on teaching and learning, creativity and parenting all around the world.

Now focused on his own original creative writing, he is currently engaged in producing Turn and Face the Strange, the hit show about the Hull-born musician Mick Ronson, and the screenplay Moonage Daydream, telling the story of David Bowie and Mick's musical collaboration. .


  1. I am not an English teacher and probably never will be, but this books leaves me with a nagging feeling that I'm missing out on something. Garry Burnett's love of language, of words, of images and imagery is contagious and makes you desperate to get together with a group of young people and work through these charming and engaging stories using the clear and detailed ideas and strategies from the workbook. There is a personal, almost cathartic, nature to his stories ” vignettes of Northern life - that will resonate with teachers as much as the children. And more than just a useful addition to a literacy lesson, the author draws from his experience in thinking and learning to show the teacher how to use the stories as a starting point for exploring issues including family, bullying, identity, creativity and even bereavement.
