I’m offering interactive talks with Q&A, creative writing workshops and book readings as well as custom sessions.
Suitable for years 5, 6 & 7.
What to expect in my sessions
My stories have an strong environmental message and I love incorporating climate change, ecosystems, wildlife and biodiversity into my events!
Some topics I have covered in the past include:
- Villains and heroes
- Writing wild weather
- World building
- Life of an author
I work with local bookshops to ensure students have access to my books and I can send out signed bookplates in advance of the session.
I charge in line with the Society of Authors recommendations.
• 10 minutes – Free charitable session consisting of a short reading (limited availability).
• 30 minute Q&A – £50
• 45 minute workshop – £75
• 60 minute workshop and Q&A – £100
Scholastic have created some fantastic free book resources for The Switching Hour, aimed at upper Key Stage 2 – Year 5. Students can learn about myths, legends and traditional stories, gain an increased awareness of the effects of climate change and develop their descriptive and creative skills!
