School visits ...
YES PLEASE – I would love to visit your school or education setting!
My MG books ‘The House on the Edge’ and 'The Mermaid Call' are perfect for 8-12 year olds and I can tailor virtual or in real-life sessions to suit different ages and abilities across primary and secondary.
I have lots of experience of running school workshops, talks and judging book competitions, from 'Meet the Author' assemblies to bespoke creative writing sessions that can cover a range of cross-curriculum topics, including English, History, Geography and PHSE.
Some workshop examples include:
Create your own 'Spooky House Story' activity
Create your own 'Village Legend' activity
Grow your Imagination Superpower
While I follow the Society of Authors’ recommended fees, I'm very happy to discuss what suits you budget-wise, especially if you're a school with higher levels of deprivation. I'm also happy to make a reduction if you’re ordering books for the visit through an independent bookshop!
