I am a poet, writer, and storyteller whose aim in life is to inspire children to write. I live in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I have full public liability insurance and a valid DBS. I have visited over 300 schools, many of which I return to repeatedly. I am also the Patron of Reading for a family of 16 schools.

 

I have written five collections of poetry for children, and a rhyming picture book for younger children. When I come to your school I can guarantee a day that will not be forgotten. I will inspire your children and enthuse your staff. As a teacher commented recently: ' The kids just LOVE it, and so do we!'

 

It can be very difficult to know how good someone is just from their website - ALL websites look pretty good. I would therefore be delighted to put you in touch with schools that I have recently worked with so that you can contact them to get a better idea of what a Conrad day in school is actually like. A recommendation from another school is often a good way to feel more secure that you're making a good choice when picking a particular author.

 

I offer writing workshops where I often uses my own stories to inspire children to write theirs; I offer storytelling workshops using both my own stories and stories that have been gathered from all around the world; and I offer poetry workshops where children have the opportunity to write their own poems and / or become performance poets.

 

To find out more, please log on to my website at www.conradburdekin.com where you can see me in action and find out what I've been up to. You can also find me on twitter @conradburdekin or Facebook by searching for Conrad Burdekin Books.

 

If you would like me to come and work in your school, please get in touch as soon as possible as I get booked up quickly.

 

Thanks for reading!

 

Conrad
