I enjoy running creative, curriculum-linked events for schools, libraries and festivals. My latest workshops include:
- How To Change the World
Explore my Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize-shortlisted title and find out how to change the world in this interactive workshop.
- Self-Destructing Science
Hands-on science with a twist, to entice reluctant readers… and reluctant scientists! This workshop can be themed around space science or animals and other wild things.
- Non-Fiction Bootcamp!
Children compete in teams to master the five rules of writing awesome non-fiction, and explore lots of fascinating facts on the way.
I also run workshops for grown-up writers on planning, writing and pitching non-fiction.
I’m happy to tailor talks and workshops to a particular theme or text type. Please get in touch to find out more about these fun, interactive sessions. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
