I love visiting schools and talking to students both as a writer, and as an academic.
I have worked with primary and secondary schools all over the country and delivered talks and worshops to students aged 7-18.
If you are interested in having me visit your school then just drop me an email via the contact page or the form below.
"All the junior pupils at our school were thrilled and inspired by a visit from Laura Wood. She talked to them about how and why she wrote "Poppy Pym", involving them in creating their own characters and plots for their story writing. After school, the enthusiastic children and their parents were able to come and meet Laura, who signed her book for them to buy."
Liz Pape, Literacy Co-ordinator, Challock Primary School
"During a recent visit, Laura was equally at home talking to large groups in the hall as she was during the creative writing activity in small groups. The students responded overwhelmingly positively - many of them were asking when she is coming in again! I would highly recommend a school visit from Laura as a down to earth, likable author with a natural affinity with students of all ages."
