I like visiting schools! I am particularly keen to work in Midlands, Manchester, London , Brighton and Edinburgh areas but will consider travel anywhere.
I work with the whole age range from nursery to Y6, and am happy to share my stories, give hints for writing, perform poetry and run writing workshops.
I have worked in hundreds and hundreds of schools all over the country and abroad. I also talk to teachers and parents. I have spoken at many teacher's conferences and run Inset days.
Here are some testimonials:
"Thank you for bringing reading magic to our school. Your wonderful workshops have inspired children and staff, and in each class room I can see children excited to continue the work you have begun. The children and the staff are buzzing!" Shireen Babul, School Librarian, Chalkhill Primary, Brent.
“I just wanted to thank you again for today. Everyone agreed that it all went really well, the staff and children are buzzing and all are further inspired to read and write. For myself, I will be carrying a little notepad around and trying desperately to jot ideas down for writing!” Jan Tate, Glapthorn CE Lower School
Michaela visited our school last July and worked with Nursery up to Year 5. The children loved listening to her stories and learning all about the ‘writing process’. When it came to their own writing, they were highly motivated and enthusiastic and couldn’t wait to get their ideas down on paper.The teachers were full of praise about the visit and felt that Michaela’s approach to books and writing was very inspiring! Jane Dearlove KS2 English and Drama Co-ordinator, Kent College Prep.
The children absolutely loved the work you did with them and are still talking about it now. You were able to accommodate a wide age range and motivate the children to produce some excellent work. The parents were also thrilled and I will be recommending you to other schools. Thanks again, Emma Lynch, Ealdham Primary School, Eltham, London
I have written over 140 books including poetry, picture books, fiction, non-fiction, early readers and junior novels.
