Author visits and workshops

Having worked as a teacher, I'm comfortable visiting schools and talking to children and I think it's totally awesome to be invited to work with amazing young minds. There are three main categories listed below but there's definitely room for flexibility around each one. Please get in touch for a chat to discuss your specific requirements and hopefully we can find something that fits with your budget and your exciting plans!

AUTHOR VISITS AND WORKSHOPS

I would love to come and visit your school or festival to talk about the issues covered in my books, my writing process, the way that books get made, or a combination of all of the above! I'm happy to do assemblies, work with different classes / age groups, or anything else that might work.

ONLINE TALKS AND Q&A SESSIONS

If it's not possible to come and visit you in person, I can chat to groups via the video calling platform that works best for you. I'm happy to prepare something beforehand or be led by the children on the day – it's up to you!

FOREST SCHOOL SESSIONS BASED AROUND BOOKS

Having run forest school sessions for many groups of children, I'm happy to incorporate an outdoor learning experience into my school / festival visits. We can always have a chat about what might work best in your setting.
