What I can do for you
As a former stand-up comedian I can offer a dynamic, fast flowing hour or half hour. As a current creative writing professor at Kingston University I will make sure that children take away valuable lessons about story creation that will help them both in their creative writing, and English comprehension. I have run both of the following workshop models successfully online.
- Story workshop. With help from a teacher/moderator, I will create a unique story that has never existed before. I will show how the story works and teach the pupils professional story writing vocabulary. This is always a hilarious session.
- Alternatively, students may send me questions in advance which I will answer, alongside readings. I will also read out and offer critiques of pupil writing (which I ask to be emailed in advanced). A fun, and relaxed hour that goes very quickly. I can do a half hour version of this class.
Feedback from Thomas Tallis School.
‘First bit of positive feedback. Thank you so much for a brilliant talk.
I just wanted to write you an email to thank you for letting us have an excellent experience with the online author talk, it was absolutely marvellous. I also wanted to say thank you for passing on my question to Adam Baron, it was great to hear him answer. His books sound excellent, I shall be saving up for the next couple of weeks to buy it.
