Work In Schools
I've worked in over 2,500 primary and secondary schools in 20 different countries
Reading from “Ian Billings’ Lost Property”
If you’re a teacher, a head, a guardian, a parent, a dinner supervisor or anyone connected with schools this is the page for you!
“Best thing I’ve seen in this school in thirty years!”
Iain Blaxall, Teacher, Norwich School, England
I have worked in over 2500 schools in 20 different countries delivering creative writing workshops and my stand-up literacy show.
I try to fit in as many schools as my writing schedule allows and I love doing them!
“The students are still talking about it and we all went to work to develop interesting characters and settings in order to publish some interesting stories.
I personally noticed an improvement in several students’ writing due
to the details they included. This they remembered from you and I thank you.”
Mimi Attia, Le Rosey, Rolle, Switzerland
