Introducing Cat

 

You’ll 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 :-)

 

Cat can visit your school in either capacity or bring a mixture of both eg a storytelling assembly for KS1 and creative writing workshops for KS2.

 

Pretty much anything is possible:

 

  • ~ She comfortably works across all ages from Nursery - Year 9
  • ~ A full day is 4 x 50/60 minute sessions. You can fill them how you want.
  • ~ Large numbers are not a problem. She is used to big audiences and can bring her own PA if necessary.

 

Cat can offer workshops on many aspects of creative writing, from Year 1 upwards. As a fantasy writer, she specialises in Imagined worlds and cinematic writing. She also offers specialist creativity workshops for Reception - Year 3 on the theme of light: wonderandmagic.co.uk

 

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.

 

 ~ Her Money Back Guarantee has never been claimed! ~

 

Please feel free to email Cat directly for a guaranteed (and faster) response: catw@btconnect.com

 

Enquiries are FREE - please ask :-)
