'If any other school is dithering over who to book - BOOK CAT!
The author hasn't even got home yet. In fact, Cat Weatherill has barely left the school building, but WOW! AMAZING! We've had a fantastic day with her. She inspired our students to produce some magical writing and talked to our older students about the writing and publishing process. Cat gave me exactly what I'd asked for and more, and we've really enjoyed our time with her.' Simon Lawley, Teacher, Church Lawton School 2022 (email to agent)
You get a Buy One, Get One Free type deal if you book Cat... She is both a best-selling Puffin author AND one of the UK’s best-loved storytellers! She is also a poet, with poems published in anthologies from Bloomsbury, Macmillan and more.
Cat can visit your school in any capacity or bring a mixture eg a storytelling assembly for KS1 and creative writing workshops for KS2.
Pretty much anything is possible:
Cat can offer workshops on many aspects of creative writing, from Year 1 upwards. As a fantasy writer, she specialises in Imagined worlds and Quest stories. For KS3, her Abstract Writing workshop can yield astonishing results with reluctant writers.
Cat adores visiting schools and works across the UK and INTERNATIONALLY. She creates a real buzz, brings laughter and energy to her sessions, and can be genuinely inspirational. She has been an Artist in Education for twenty five years and has super-efficient admin in place.
* ONLINE sessions still available, including her magical Writing By Candlelight sessions *

Hi there! Cat's visit was very interesting. She worked with various school children and they really enjoyed her sessions. She is a very good storyteller and also animates her sessions with music and drama. She is very good in eliciting stories from the students to draft their ideas on paper. Thank you dear Cat for making for your visit in Malta a wonderful experience for us all! :)
Cat was very professional and the students engaged throughout each session. One student even advised their teacher that it was the "best lesson ever!" Cat verbally praised each student and gave time for each student to share their answers with their peers, which thus boosted their confidence. A great day was had by all.
