Details

 

I welcome visits to schools in my area (Beds/Bucks/Herts/Northants) and sometimes further afield.   I enjoy running workshops for children, giving short talks on how I write, doing question and answer sessions.  I prefer groups of up to 30 and an informal approach.  I  like to talk to a teacher beforehand to discuss the event and whether they would like me to bring books to sell.

I have also worked with adults, doing Creative Writing and running workshops (for Adult Education). 

For more information about my books please visit my Website, www.Griselda.co.uk.
