Now taking bookings for in person author visits suited to kS 2 and 3. For digital events please scroll down.
I have limited slots available for full day author visits. Half days are possible if the school is 30 miles travel.
Two types of session available:
45 minute assembly style presentation addressing a large group in a hall or similar setting with a powerpoint presentation, reading, interactive elements and artefacts, plus question time.
45 minute creative writing workshop session in classrooms including introduction and professional writing tips, collaborative writing, prompts, supported writing time and the option to send best work produced for me for feedback at a later date.
A full day includes four of these sessions - whichever mix of assembly/workshop you would like.
This is 9am - 3.30pm. The price is £500.
A half day includes 2 of these sessions and is 9am - 12pm or 12.30 - 3.30pm. The price is £300.
I am also happy to sign books and meet and chat to students informally outside the planned sessions - just set me up somewhere and I’d love to meet them!
