I’m a 21st Century Author

PictureMe at Bloomsbury

I’m really excited to be involved in the 21st Century Author program devised by the National Literacy Trust. They realise the power of author talks to inspire children to pick up a book and start reading.
They put together a program funded by the Arts Council to help new authors devise and deliver effective school visits. The training, delivered by Author Profile has been great. It’s been hilarious struggling alongside other authors to define ourselves as author performers.

I was thrilled with the feedback on my own performance and was absolutely enthralled by my fellow authors, who were all amazing.
Now I can’t wait to put what I learnt into practice. Bring on a room of 8-10 year olds!
