Author Visits

As a best-selling author and co-founder of Storytelling Schools, Adam specialises in interactive author visits aimed at elevating language acquisition and providing inspirational contexts for writing. Adam offers clear modelling of activities, creating a lasting legacy by using his own published picture books alongside oral stories. As a result, his workshops establish inspiring and stimulating contexts with which pupils can engage with enthusiasm and focus. He offers bespoke sessions for Nursery, Reception, KS1 and KS2, linking to curriculum topics whenever possible. Adam explains video.

Author in Residence

Adam is currently ‘author in residence’ with a number of schools in the UK and Europe. In this capacity, he collaborates with literacy co-ordinators to create a bespoke plan of workshops and visits for classes throughout the school. Please get in touch for more details.

Virtual Author Visits with a Difference

While there’s nothing quite like a traditional author visit, where Adam can meet and work with you all in person, virtual author visits are environmentally friendly and lots of fun.

Please drop Adam an email at adamguillain@gmail.com for more details.

You see Adam in action with the Oak Academy where he facilitates the first 60 lessons for Reception as part of the National Recovery Curriculum. You can also see Adam on YouTubeFacebook and his author website.
