Working with children and young people is without doubt the best part of my writing adventure. I offer a range of activities and attend many different events including school visits, literary festivals and library events.
September 2020 Update
At the time of posting, schools are fully reopening and I am happy to resume my in-person author visits, with all Covid-safe regulations implemented. However, I fully understand that inviting me into school might not be an option just yet. If that’s the case, how about a virtual visit? Beam me into your school and I’ll enthuse and excite your pupils about reading and writing via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or your preferred method.
Virtual Author Assembly
- My writing adventure
- 2 x story extracts including author analysis
- Writing hints and tips
- Dan’s recommended KS2 reads
- Q&A/author chat
Duration = 40 minutes
Cost = £45
Virtual Storytelling Assembly
As above, plus I’ll put on my storytelling waistcoat and perform one of the Impossible Tales!
Duration = 55 minutes
Cost = £60
Books For School
Follow up the virtual visit by allowing your pupils to read more of the stories I shared during our time together. I am happy to sign and dedicate a copy of each of my books (five in total) for your school and post them directly to any destination within the UK.
Cost = £25
The world feels like a very different place at the minute and I am adapting and evolving, as I guess you are too. I’m totally open to ideas and suggestions should you wish to discuss other virtual options for your school. Please just give me a shout and let’s see what we can do!
Check out the fabulous feedback from some of my recent virtual sessions:
“The virtual session ran so smoothly with Dan enchanting the children with readings including a particularly descriptive passage about a boy with super-powered snot that had myself and the children laughing into our webcams! He then recommended some books for the children that he had read over lockdown and there was excitement in our group chat at this point with children declaring their intentions to buy them ALL! After this, Dan held a Q and A session and children that had once seemed shy and wary of this new way of communication turned into journalists; grilling Dan with all manner of questions that he expertly answered.
