I love meeting enthusiastic readers and writers to tell them how I became a children’s author. I offer paid talks and workshops for KS2 & 3, years 4-8. I am happy to visit festivals, library groups, single classes or assemblies.
A TALK (for groups of any size). I explain the inspiration behind my books using slides, film clips, animations, interactive activities, readings and a Q&A.
AN ANIMATION WORKSHOP – Design your own Mechanimal! (For groups of 30 or less.) I help students to design, draw and write a description of their own mechanimal, then we bring them to life using a flip animation or a zoetrope strip. (This session can also include a brief intro to the books and a Q&A if required.)
A WRITING WORKSHOP – Exciting Openings & Magical Mcguffins! (For groups of 30 or less.) I help students craft an exciting opening for a story featuring a magical object picked out of a hat. (This session can also include a brief intro to the books and a Q&A if required.)
A BOOK SIGNING follows each event.
