Granny Norbag Productions
My name is Malcolm J Hogan, and I'm the author/creator of Granny Norbag. There are, so far, 4 picture books in the series and each one has links to the KS1 curriculum.
My work with Granny Norbag has now crossed over into entertainment. Granny is now a popular music artist - tipped to be the next Ariana Grandma. I've also performed puppet shows for Grimm & Co, RMBC, Rotherham Libraries and Sheffield Theatres.
Away from creating Granny Norbag, I am an award winning songwriter, a participant on the Skywrites TV writers development programme (Sky TV/New Writing North), and the current Artist In Residence at the Rotherham Civic Theatre.
I perform musical, storytelling puppet shows for Foundation Stage 2, KS1, Lower KS2 and local communities. I have toured shows for Sheffield Theatres (July 22) and Rotherham Libraries (November/December 22).
With support from Arts Coucil England, Help Musicians, We Are IVE, Sheffield Theatres and The Rotherham Civic, I am taking the show ‘Granny Norbag Saves The Planet’ into schools from February 2023. The show has strong Environmental links and an interactive follow up project that schools can take part in.
I offer both KS1 and KS2 creative writing workshops. My author visits are well received by FS2, KS1 and Lower KS2.
In 2023 I am launching two workshops for KS2 and KS3 - ‘Writing For Stage And Screen’, and ‘Unlocking Your Creative Potential’.
