FREE Author Visits
As I’am a new author still finding my feet at school visits, all my visits in the NT will be free until the end of 2022.
I have loads of enthusiasm, energy, a working with children’s card (Ochre) ,public liability insurance and am able to run a session that is tailored to the age of the audience. Below is the author visit/ presentations that I run. With all my sessions I am very flexible and happy to adapt topics to meet to specific requests from teachers.
