How I Wrote (and Published) a Book as a Teenager
This is a 45 minute talk, discussing how I wrote my first novel while doing my GCSES. I offer advice on how students can come up with their own stories and how they can find the time to write. I also talk about other how social media can make us better writers – and discuss my time as a book blogger and YouTuber.
At the end of the talk, there is a 15 minute Q&A session. This talk works well for both large and small groups.
Booktube & Blogging
With each talk or workshop, I will send your school signed Paper & Hearts Society series book plates and postcards for your students and/or school library.
Please note that, due to my schedule, I am currently only taking limited bookings for school visits and require notice of a term. This is because, as well as being an author, I am also a university student – and have lots of studying of my own, just like your students!
I charge in accordance with the Society of Authors’ recommended rates. For more information or to book a talk or workshop, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and include SCHOOL VISIT in the subject line.
I am the YA author of The Paper & Hearts Society series, published by Hodder Children’s Books. I’ve been a book blogger for the past nine years, discussing my favourite books and offering recommendations, and also have my own YouTube channel, where I have 45,000 subscribers.
Between the beginning of 2018 and the end of 2019, I was the Brontë Society’s Young Ambassador. I have experience speaking at major literary festivals, such as Cheltenham Literature Festival and Bath Children’s Literature Festival, as well as library and industry conferences.
