Children’s writer and storyteller
Adam’s visits cover the whole of the primary school age-range. He can offer a one hour performance which is dynamic and energetic, and would include songs and props. These sessions are perfect for large audiences. On a full day’s visit Adam can also offer a range of storytelling and writing workshops for groups up to 60. As co-founder of Storytelling Schools (STS,) an international organisation dedicated to raising attainment in literacy, Adam is often asked to introduce HEAR MAP STEP SPEAK methods. These workshops are structured as 2 X 1-hour sessions in the morning followed by 1 X 1 hour in the afternoon with then 25 minutes left for Foundation or any other group you would like to focus on. These workshops are interactive, modelling the oral, kinesthetic and visual methods used by Storytelling Schools in many parts of the country and abroad.
An author visit as outlined above would conclude with an after-school book-signing.
If you would like to add a twilight training on how to use storytelling to support writing, I’m happy to do so. These trainings can be up to 2 hours (1.5 hours if needed) and would be invoiced for separately by Storytelling Schools. Usually these trainings are £650 + VAT but I can offer a £150 discount as it’s tagged onto an author visit and of course there are no additional travel expenses.

"The best author visit we have ever had"
"It was reception children’s first time in the hall for an assembly. We weren’t sure if some children would last 5 minutes. They sat enthralled for an hour."
"This was an incredibly successful visit, the feedback was excellent from teachers, children and parents. They particularly enjoyed the interactive nature of the event. Afterwards some of the classes drew their own Gremlins using the link that Adam had shared on the day. These were shared with Adam, Charlotte and Authors Aloud on Twitter as well as pictures from the event."
