Presentations and Workshops

Many authors factor paid presenting and workshopping into their working life. I haven't. Kalbarri is 700kms north of Perth, so I'm not regularly on the road to bookshops or schools. I do attend festivals when invited or go to Perth for bookweek and I meet loads of young readers then. See those dates below.

Online Presentations

I sometimes do online workshops but they are quite difficult to run. I often have trouble seeing what the kids are doing or reading the room without guidance from the teacher on the ground. However if your class has read one of my books and wants to have a quick Q and A about it, that's a great way for me to connect with young readers. Collect your questions and let's get online!
