Virtual Author Visits
I am currently offering Virtual Visits online via Zoom, and in-person visits will resume January 2022.
In-person visits start from £150 for a 1-hour assembly and Q&A, to £300 for a full day of talks and writing workshops.
Virtual author visits are approx. 30-40 minutes long and include:
A handwritten letter OR a short video message for the children, from me ahead of the visit.
A LIVE storytelling of one of my books and Q&A session - giving the children a chance to ask me questions.
A short talk about what it takes to write and publish a book (adapted for different year groups).
A FREE learning resource pack, including EYFS - KS2 English, Maths and PSHE activities and worksheets.
A FREE signed copy of one of my books for school.
Dedicated code for parents to order books directly from my online store (includes FREE delivery).
A parent communication template, explaining all about the visit and how they can pre-order books.
Online sessions are £50 or FREE with a minimum order of 10 books from parents or school.
Get in touch for more info, or secure your date NOW and book directly online.
The Magic of an Author Visit
Meeting a ‘real-life’ author, can spark an interest in books and reading, and boost the confidence of even the most reluctant readers and writers.
According to a report from the Literacy Trust, pupils who’d recently had a visit from an author were:
· Twice as likely to read above the expected level for their age (31% vs 17%)
· More likely to enjoy reading (68% vs 47%) and writing (44% vs 32%)
· More likely to be highly confident in their reading (37% vs 25%) and writing (22% vs 17%)
