Type of Artist:
I typically run ‘how I became an author’ inspirational talks, short readings, Q&As – plenty of interaction with the children. Workshops are more practical and typically for Emily Knight we brainstorm superpowers and talk through a battle scene (it can get noisy and is lots of fun). For The Very Merry Murder Club, we play a game of ‘who-done-it’ based on characters from my story.
DetailsPreferred age range:
Prefer children aged 7 -14 for my middle grade books mentioned above and 13+ for my YA book (out 2022).
Maximum number in any one session:
I don’t mind
No of sessions per day:
I usually do an hour so that works to do a talk for 30, workshop for 15 mins then signing books or Q&A.
Areas prepared to travel to:
London based. Open to anywhere if expenses are paid and depending on the distance my travel time is covered at my hourly rate.
Will travel by train, car or bus/coach but not sure how much to charge
