Talks and Workshops
I love getting out and about to talk to budding young writers. While my books are primarily aimed at ages 7+ I can offer a variety of sessions for a wide range of ages and skill levels.
Where do writers get their ideas?
A lively presentation on different ways of kickstarting and developing story ideas, with a range of writing exercises teachers can take into the classroom. 1hr
If you’d like me to stay for a morning, or afternoon, I can deliver an assembly, then run creative writing exercises in class.
Looking at the process of writing, from idea generation through to planning, structure and editing.
Careers in Games
Often delivered at secondary schools and sixth form colleges. This talk looks at the wide range of roles available in the games industry, and what your students can do to start building those skills now. 1hr
All sessions can be extended depending on the amount of interaction and inclusion of Q&A sessions. Feel free to get in touch for a chat about what I can offer your school or event. I’d love to hear from you!
