My 2012-13 diary of school, college and library visits is just about full. I only have five available dates left:
June 17, 19.
As a result, I am opening the 2013-14 diary.
I do three kinds of activity:
*Author talk: a fast paced, funny, anecdotal introduction to my life as an award winning children’s author
*Writing workshops: scaffolded class-sized lessons, demonstrating some techniques to write clear, coherent, interesting and engaging fiction, non-fiction and poetry
*CPD sessions: in-service training for primary and secondary teachers on the teaching of writing. Twilight, half-day and full-day sessions on The Literate Classroom, Writing Across the Curriculum, The Trouble with Boys, Inspiring Reluctant Readers
