'A true artist
is not one who is inspired,
but one who inspires others.'
- Salvador Dali
Debi's 'author experience' in schools is very popular with KS2 children and covers the ideas behind the stories and a reading of extracts from the series as well as plenty of visual content and food for thought. Time afterwards is allocated for individual questions from children.
The aim is to encourage creative writing and promote reading, sharing writing tips and leaving teachers with follow up ideas based on the books.
Signed and dedicated books will be available for purchase on the day and after the visit via school.
Aside from the above presentation, I can work with small groups or classes to further stimulate the imaginative writing of stories.
“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Rudyard Kipling.
Creative writing workshops for KS2 are my speciality. Please contact Debi directly for further details or to book.
