Creative Writing Sessions

Author sessions can provide a great way to engage pupils in reading and writing and often leave lasting memories for many years to come. My visits can take the form of creative writing sessions either with whole classes or smaller, targeted groups (they can be an excellent use of pupil premium funding), poetry activities or focus heavily on tips and tricks to overcome the dreaded “I don’t know how to get started”.

If you book early enough then any session can be tailored specifically to your topics, from the Aztecs to the space race; there’s no need to wait for World Book Day to engage your children and ignite a lifelong love of reading and writing.

Whilst I work primarily within Leicestershire (and visits within the county don’t incur any travel costs), I am happy to travel and can discuss travel reimbursement as part of our conversation.

If you’re interested in discussing a session, get in touch via email or head over to one of the many school booking websites such as https://contactanauthor.co.uk/author/970/matt-beighton or https://www.findschoolworkshops.co.uk/ to find out more.
