School Visits

I am available for school visits and still have some availability for Book Week, August, 2018.

I can tailor my appearance to meet individual class needs; this might include:

  • Creative writing exercises – how to come up with ideas and follow through.
  • Reading and comprehension exercises.
  • A talk on my journey to publication and my experience as an author – including answering popular questions such as where do I get ideas from and what’s my favourite flavour of ice-cream (choc-mint).

I charge the recommended rates of the Australian Society of Authors which can be found here.

I am also available to speak to community groups or at mental health events.

My recent speaking engagements have included:

Speaking at the opening of Mental Health Week 2016

Presentation to Colac maternal, child health nurses 2015

Speaking for Are you OK day for the Geelong Regional Library Corporation

Presenting at the Christian Writer’s Conference
