‘Wild About Words’ is a creative consultancy dedicated to learning through the creative process. Hilary Keating, children’s author and scriptwriter created the company because she believes passionately that by raising the self esteem, confidence and life expectations of children in their early years, we create a healthy, inclusive and productive society,
“We are born to live life to the full, why wait or worse still miss out completely?”
Children’s First Forum, Liverpool Museum 2006
Hilary began her professional writing career in 1995 with Redan Publishing writing for the Fireman Sam and Mr. Men series. Other commissions followed including Wizadora children’s TV, gallery trails for Tate Liverpool and Early Years books for the Sure Start government programme to support their ‘Every Child Matters Report’. Most recent early years publications include ‘Yum’ and ‘The Tummy Train’ all about healthy eating and ‘‘I can, you can, we can’ all about raising self esteem.
Hilary’s passion for raising children’s life expectations through creative practice is matched by her company’s desire to work in a socially inclusive way, focusing on children’s rights, participation and process.
