Working with children and young people is without doubt the best part of my writing adventure. I deliver a range of activities within a variety of settings including schools, colleges, youth groups, libraries and literary festivals.
Example fees for in-person visits:
£300 for a full-day visit
£150 for a half-day visit
£100 for a two-hour visit
Travel costs will be charged should I be required to travel out of my direct locality.
My virtual author sessions continue to run alongside the in-person sessions. Virtual visits can involve multiple classes/remote participants and are guaranteed to generate a lasting ‘book buzz’. Beam me onto your screens via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams and I’ll enthuse, excite and entertain your young people about reading and writing.

Check out the feedback from some of my virtual sessions:
“Dan and his storytelling waistcoat transferred seamlessly to the big screen. Minutes to set up, teachers able to access easily and children engaged and enthralled with this outstanding virtual author experience. The technology-enhanced interactive visit transported Dan directly into the children’s classroom and transported their imaginations to the heavens. 10/10!”
Stephen Twist, Staining CE Primary
“Dan provided us with three fantastic digital storytelling workshops for Years 1-6. He was very engaging and the children took a lot away from the session. They have been talking about his funny stories ever since!”
English Lead Teacher, British School of Gran Canaria
“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.
“The virtual session was fun and I enjoyed the bit when Dan read a little bit about Eric. Dan Worsley inspires me to be a writer and before I met him I did not think I was that good at writing but after the virtual lesson, I felt a lot more confident. His tips also work really well and he is a very inspirational person. He is like my writing hero!”
“Dan Worsley inspired me to write my own book some day. He proves you can do great things in life if you put your mind to it. Dan has shown me you can write a book even if you are a child. His book reading brought a smile to my face. You can be anything if you just believe!”
“Dan inspired me to read more whether it is his books or others. I now read every night before going to sleep. He also inspired me to write more and try adding more description to my work.”
