What people are saying
Thank you for recommending Lucia for this year’s Literature Festival Day. It was a huge success and we have had wonderful feedback from students and teachers.
We had the opportunity to listen to Jess Black speak during the Newcastle Writer’s Festival. The students found her presentation entertaining and very interesting. Listening to stories from Jess’ youth and her love for animals and the pleasure she received from their many adventures were both enjoyable and engaging. Like the books Jess has written, she really had the ability to relate to the children and take their imaginations on a memorable journey. During the presentation Jess was able to [...]
I just needed to let you know how inspired you left my 9 yr old daughter after your visit to PLC this week. She actually slept with your autograph under her pillow! She loves to write stories, and whatever you said made it, (and I quote), "the best day in her life". I shall definitely buy your books so she may continue to be inspired.
An excellent day. Such a great experience for students to get writing, and to receive instant feedback on their work. Phillip’s insights and presentation were very helpful – it is so good for students to hear directly from a professional author! I also came away inspired to get writing!
Tim's presentation was entertaining and engaging. He had students from yrs 3, 4 5 and 6 in the palm of his hand and his books have been unavailable in our library ever since. His teaching background made his presentation very applicable to teaching story writing skills as well as creative ideas for story writing. Our teachers were especially impressed by the practical nature of Tim's presentation. Absolutely worth every penny.
Deb was a very engaging speaker and performer. The children really enjoyed the visit and have been madly borrowing her books. Deb pitched her talk to each year level and managed to have everyone laughing and learning at their level - including the teachers.
Richard Yaxley was wonderful this year, really knows his stuff and was easy to talk to and spent a lot of time with each of the entrants.
At our Readers Cup event in August, Taryn spoke with passion about her writing process. She really connected with the audience of young adult readers and their families. Her talent as a writer clearly extends to speaking about her characters and their stories. Taryn's enthusiasm to support our event shows how much she values reading and the importance of promoting this to young people.
I asked for recommendations of presenters in my area and received a detailed and informative response that reflected how well Speakers Ink know their presenters.
