events

I am currently taking bookings for workshops and author visits so please get in touch if you’d like me to come to your school, library, yurt, castle or island.

SCHOOLS – I used to be an English and Drama teacher so I’m used to being in schools.

As I run oodles of school events I can’t list them all here – I’m so sorry if you aren’t listed!

It’s not because I don’t think you are brilliant – because I do! You are the best!

Here’s a lovely calming photo of my doggy in case you are feeling angry. Good boy Watson Jones! Where’s your ball?

    ‘As for when you visited, I cannot put into words how much the children gained from the day. I’ve seen many creative writing workshops during my career, but I have to say I have not seen one that has inspired the children quite as much as yours. After your visit, we spent some time writing our own stories. Almost everyone in the class used a technique that you shared with them to help write their stories. Still now, weeks after your visit, the children talk about and use your advice every week.’ Mr Davies – Year 6 teacher. mrdaviesreads.co.uk

‘I really enjoyed today because it made me think about where I live and how to write a good story. I can’t wait to read your book!’ Harriet, 11.

 ‘You helped us harness our imaginations and embrace our inner writing skills massively. We loved spending time with you.’ Keeley. Year 6

‘I enjoyed the work because you made it exciting and fun.’ Jac, 10.

 

‘I think this workshop was funny and it taught me new things’ Leon, 11.

‘You made the day fun and exciting. It will be a memory to Year 6 forever!’ Emily, Year 6.
