Type of Artist:
Presentation and creative writing workshops
DetailsPreferred age range:
KS2 and KS3 & KS4.
I can do a presentation/author talk to KS2 (if in a Primary School) or Year 7/8/9 (if in a Secondary School).
I’m also happy to do slightly shorter whole school assemblies. I also now deliver creative writing workshops to Year 3 all the way through to, and including, sixth form and have recently been working with GCSE students on the creative writing component of their English Language exam. Also happy to read to KS1 children and/or chat to them, if in a Primary school.
No of sessions per day:
Up to four hour-long sessions (time can be split into fewer, longer sessions if required); usually a presentation plus creative writing workshops; any age group (Nursery to Sixth form); new session (s) now offered for students preparing for creative writing component of English Language GCSE
All sessions last roughly an hour, with a little extra time sometimes required for signing after the presentation.
Areas prepared to travel to:
Any reasonable distance (depending on schedule). Overnight expenses required if travelling any substantial distance.
Car unless travelling substantial distance. Then usually use train. I charge for fuel only.

From Joy Court, Learning Resources Manager, Coventry, and National Co-ordinator CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals:
“Rarely have I come across a writer who has the presence and performance skills to really engage children from all backgrounds and abilities as Harriet Goodwin does so brilliantly: her thoughtful analysis of the writing process ensures that she is really able to hit all the creative writing trigger points for children and the result is a huge enthusiasm for writing and, of course, for devouring their own precious copies of her books.”
