Author Talks, Creative Writing Workshops and storytelling

 

AUTHOR VISITS CAN CHANGE LIVES!

The National Literacy Trust carried out a recent report  and found out that if an author visits a school in a academic year then pupils were: 

  • twice as likely to read above the expected level for their age (31% vs 17%)
  • more likely to enjoy reading (68% vs 47%) and writing (44% vs 32%)
  • more likely to be highly confident in their reading (37% vs 25%) and writing (22% vs 17%)

However, we also found that only 1 in 4 pupils had an author visit this academic year, and those from the poorest backgrounds were most likely to miss out.

Chinese Storytelling Sessions 

Suitable for 3-8 year olds

 

In the past I have been the Goddess Guan Yin and told interactive stories of Chinese myths and legends. I have an array of stories of dragons, mythical creatures, creation myths, and goddess stories. 

 

I have worked for Manchester Museum and Art Gallery during Chinese New Year, Herefordshire Council, Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Barber Institute with the Chinese Community Centre.
