Author Visits

PLEASE NOTE: as of 2016  Andrew and Polly have cut back on school author visits to give time to their various writing and photography projects. Andrew still visits literary festivals, camera clubs, wildlife and conservation groups to share his nature writing and photography For school visits, he is available for schools who have expressed a specific interest in his published books. 

Andrew and Polly are both highly experienced in offering author visits and performances across the whole age range. Their author events are lively, dynamic and interactive yet also  thought-provoking. They aim to provide an experience that brings literacy vibrantly and truly alive. Occasionally, they are available for joint author events. However, usually, solo author visits are arranged.
Andrew's renowned and acclaimed performances {and workshops in  both fiction and poetry} are based on the range of published books, according to age group and required focus. He can present his lively mix of performance poetry, interactive readings from his fiction and stand up comedy to all ages from primary to secondary with group sizes up to 300. Workshops in poetry or fiction are often up to maximum class size of 35.

Polly's visits are tailored to age range and requirements and can include storytelling and workshops as well as author-led performance/interactive presentation.
