I've run workshops and talks in schools and public libraries all over the country. My literacy workshops have even helped schools raise their NAPLAN results! My background is High School Art/English and 28 years as a Special Education Teacher, Literacy Specialist and Childrens Counsellor. Kids can have fun at my workshops while they learn to improve their literacy skills.
I work with kinder to year 12. Its a very flexible program, tailored to whatever the school or group requires. I've run writing workshops for kids (adults too!) in Adelaide SA, Victor Harbour SA, Townsville QLD, Perth W.A. Canberra ACT, Blue Mountains NSW and Tasmania, in schools and regional libraries. I'm happy to tackle any age group!My aim is to create a love of reading and writing, to encourage kids to express their thoughts and feelings creatively and confidently. I have also conducted workshops for adults on writing generally as well as for the children's market. Below is my basic flyer.

If you'd like a visit from me and an opportunity for your students/clients to enjoy a fun and educational workshop with stimulating ideas, solid tips on structure and the narrative genre, just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
