The Authors, Illustrators, Poets and Storytellers Authors Aloud UK represents

We have teamed up with some of the UK’s very best authors, illustrators, storytellers and poets in order to provide a wide ranging selection from which to make your choice. Whether you are planning an author visit for a school or library, a Conference or Festival, or a training course, we will be able to offer advice on who might work best with your audience. Whether you want a speaker to inpsire pre-school, primary, secondary children or adults, there will be a number of people here who will meet your needs. Prices will vary according to the author/illustrator but will start at around £350.

The Author category has been split into two sections for Authors for Primary and Secondary age children. Whilst there are quite a number of authors who write stories across both age groups, and so are included in both sections, there are some who focus on one or the other, so we have split the list to hopefully make it easier for relevant authors to be found.
