VIRTUAL VISITS NOW AVAILABLE…
For author talks, I’m happy to speak to single classes, reading/book groups, combined classes and entire year groups.
I am passionate about reading for pleasure, and promote books at every opportunity. This often includes a fun and thought-provoking presentation about fixed versus growth mindsets. I also work with Empathy Lab UK and am very keen to promote empathy through reading.
I also speak about the creative process, and tell stories about my own childhood love for reading and writing. I’m happy to answer any questions that the pupils may have. Once again these sessions are informal.
The creative writing sessions focus mainly on the use of imagination in writing. I try to make the sessions fun, encouraging the pupils to add elements of absurdity/fantasy to everyday situations like going shopping or walking to school. I also help them to make simple plans for stories and to think about characters and developing ideas.
