Type of Artist:
Talks and workshops both involving activities
Scott’s talks are loud, interactive and bursting with creativity. Children are encouraged to get involved and hopefully it will inspire them to:
1) to read more books
2) become interested in writing
3) build public speaking confidence
4) Dream up some fantastic ideas
5) avoid doing school work for an hour or so
Scott is not a statuesque author who is going to bore children to sleep by reading chunks from their book. He wants the whole audience to be engaged in the session from start to finish.
