Author Visits

Angela’s main focus is to encourage as many children as possible to engage with literature.  Our interactive sessions are a huge hit with pupils and teachers using fun techniques to involve the children in reading, writing and lots of creativity!

Since launching her first book in 2015, Angela has visited over 300 schools across Scotland.

Angela’s one hour visit takes the format of a reading from one of her books followed by an Imagination Challenge or an interactive quiz to fire up the children's creativity. We find the audience who gain the most from the visits are usually primary 4, 5 and 6, however many schools also involve their P3 and P7 classes.

The cost of the one hour visit is £190.  Angela is listed on the Scottish Book Trusts Live Literature Database, which means if eligible your school can apply for part funding from the Scottish Book trust of £115 towards the cost of the author event. You can apply for Live Literature Funding here Scottish Book Trust Live Literature Funding
