Primary School Visits


School visits are a great way for authors to promote a book as well as being able to engage with young children in the hope that it will inspire them to create their own literary ‘works of art’. I went to Caedmon Primary School in Gateshead where we quite often had school trips to Gateshead Library, it was here that I met Jacqueline Wilson which was a very exciting day and a memory that has always stayed with me. Meeting a real life author is amazing for a young book worm…

Some guidance from the publisher can be found here and here.

Some important information can be found further down the page…


Important things to consider before booking:

I am a self employed freelancer so am responsible for my own self assessment tax return and paying my own taxes therefore any fees should not have tax deducted. The fee can be paid via the website or invoiced separately.

I have my own Public Liability Insurance with the Artists Network, a copy of which can be provided if necessary.

If you would like to order copies for the children to have signed in advance please let me know as soon as possible. I can arrange a trade discount and have them delivered in advance of the visit which can help to drum up some excitement over the event. All copies can be signed on the day.

Due to childcare reasons I am only able to do school visits between 10am – 2pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
