Welcome back to the new school year. My regular Teacher Tuesday posts will start again from next week but, in the meantime, I thought I’d remind you that now is a wonderful time to think about booking an author visit session with me.
Based in Western Australia, but available to travel anywhere in Australia (or the world!), I can run writing workshops, meet the author sessions, and teacher professional development.
Want to inspire your students to write creatively? A narrative writing or poetry workshop might be the go.
Want to inspire them to read? Then book a meet the author session.
You can see my recommended sessions here, but I am happy to tailor to your needs.
2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of the end of Word War 1, and also the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Villers Bretonneux. My picture book Do Not Forget Australia focusses on this battle, and the extraordinary friendship it led to between France and Australia. I would love to visit your school and talk about this friendship – and the book.
Why book me? My goal in life is to spread a love of reading, and writing – and my sessions are energetic, fun and engaging. I’m also an experienced teacher, with a PhD in children’s poetry, so my energy is backed by depth of knowledge. What all this translates to is that an author visit will increase your students’ motivation and interest in reading and writing.
