What I can do for you
Two options for engaging sessions for upper KS2 / lower KS3 students, each including a short presentation and reading, creative activities and an author Q&A. Also fits with PHSE curriculum.
Writing (extra-)ordinary stories
You don’t need magic or fantasy worlds to create an exciting story. Ideas for amazing stories are everywhere in our ordinary lives, if we know how to look.

I also offer 30-minute workshops aimed at LGBTQ+ youth/school groups (Years 7-13) on finding your voice and discovering queer stories.
