Visiting authors  help  reinforce school literacy programs. I love to get children thinking about how they can develop their own style of writing and expression through reading, performing and creative arts. 

Workshops and incursions can take a variety of forms so I would be happy to discuss with you how I can help meet the needs of your staff and students. Please fill out the form below to find out more.  I have my WWC for the State of Victoria. 

Thank you for coming to visit our 4 year old kinder class at Tree House to read your books Jaquelyn! All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we have been reading your book at least twice a week since your visit! The children have been really into making books and sharing stories with each other which is so good to see! Thanks again for bringing your passion and enthusiasm to our class and we would love to have you back again next year!
