Talks/workshops can also be individually designed to fit with your current themes or curriculum requirements.

I will always try to adapt my visit to fit the particular needs of your school and can provide a mix of creative writing workshops, readings, talks, question and answer sessions or in-depth discussions of one of my books.

I am flexible; I can work with large groups – talk to a whole year or entire school, or do workshops with smaller groups. I can fill a whole day, or part of a day. Whatever suits your school.

For Adults

I am happy to talk to groups of adults, too!


A creative writing workshop could make a really enjoyable inset day.


Maybe parents would be interested in a talk on encouraging their children to enjoy books and creative writing.

Reading groups/Creative writing groups:

  • Plotting your novel
