Book an Author Visit to your School

 

 

Children and young people are often intrigued by the writing process. An author visit peels away the mystery of writing for young people.

 Engaging with an author is an exciting way to help the writing process come alive for them. It offers children and young people a chance to get up close and personal to ask all the questions –

How do you form a plot

How do you create characters

Where do you get ideas from

Do you ever want to give up?

Author visits give students a chance to see that writers are people just like themselves, inspiring them to explore and develop their own unique talents.  Young people realize that writing is not magic. They too can make their dreams come true!
