2024 Speaking

Speaking!Teachers, Librarians, Festival Organisers…  Lend me your ears.

‘Cause I love talking!

In fact, if you give me a microphone and an audience, it can be hard to shut me up. And I am always on the look out for new speaking opportunities — presentations, workshops, keynote addresses… whatever.

With only a couple more speaking gigs left this year, I’ve set my sights on 2024. BOOK WEEK is already half full and other bookings are coming in. If anyone is interested in booking me for school/library visits, conferences or festivals you can do it through one of three speaking agents…

Although I’m best known as a children’s author and I mostly speak to school groups, I also have experience with adult audiences — from general festival audiences to tertiary level classes; even retirement villages and probus groups. I can talk about how to write for kids, the business of writing, my experiences as an author or I can tailor a presentation for your needs.

Earlier this year I recorded a short kids video workshop for the Victorian Department of Education — Getting Started With Writing. Check it out…

And this is my latest Speaking flyer. Please feel free to pass it on to anyone who may be… you know… looking for speakers.
