What people are saying
The girls learnt so much about writing, and they were inspired to read - a number of girls have already asked to read We Are Wolves - which is exactly what we hoped to achieve. The opportunities you built into the presentation for the students to engage with each other, and you, ensured they were engaged…. It has been lovely to meet you, and I hope we have a chance to work with you again in the future.
On behalf of Graceville SS and the Year 5 cohort I just wanted to say a big thank you for your wonderful writing workshop on Friday. It was exactly what we were hoping for and more. Your delivery of information and ideas really helped the children understand the importance of authorship and creative writing. The students also gained a lot of insight in to how they themselves could become effective writers. By giving them the opportunity to put pen to paper, the workshop was so successful, an [...]
Andrea was a great speaker. She engaged her audiences, across multiple ages in each session. She was approachable, articulate and her content was appropriate for each group. On the lead up to the event, Andrea made contact and went out of her way to tailor her speeches to suit our themes and ethos. She was considerate and thoughtful. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a speaker.
Roland Harvey was FANTASTIC! My favourite Author Visit so far!! Many thanks for organising this - the students and staff really enjoyed it.
Josie was very well received for her generous and genuine talk about what it is to be a writer and how to get started. The students, teachers and parents from the Fascinate writing program really responded to Josie's talk
Once again Speakers Ink provided a wonderful service. You are my first point of call for organising speakers when I need to. Speakers Ink does a great job and your costs are very reasonable given what is delivered. I do look forward to working with you again.
For two days I was engrossed inThrill Seekers World. Working in a school library I know students will embrace it too.
Nick did a fantastic job at engaging both students and parents at our awards night. Our students also thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend some time developing story ideas with him and getting valuable feedback.
Dave Lowe visited Fife as part of our Edinburgh International Book Festival Outreach events this year and performed his hilarious show to nearly 1,000 school children in one day! The shows were brilliant, funny and full of energy. After seeing the event the kids were really excited about reading his books and Dave was also able to promote reading and literacy in a fun and exciting way that the kids in the mid-range age group, which included reluctant readers, were able to connect with.
Jacqueline was kind enough to do four sessions for our school which was very generous of her. I watched all sessions and they were all wonderful. She was amazing from start to finish. She engaged all ages of her audience and there were no behavior issues because she was so entertaining. She was funny and animated and simply a delight. The comments from the students after the performance were all positive. Best speaker I have ever booked.
It was a wonderful visit last week and an experience that did support many of the messages we deliver to students regarding writing, creativity and engaging in literacy. I was particularly thrilled with the messages Kirsty gave regarding the process and long journey attached to being a writer.
Her presentation was both humorous and informative and Yvonne was flexible in her delivery and accommodated for timetable changes. I highly recommend Yvonne to any school wishing to have an author visit.
Every school was very impressed with Brian's recent visit. He was extremely well prepared with easy on-line access to his materials a real asset in determining what approach we wanted him to adopt in each location. Brian markets himself well and the students and staff found him very entertaining indeed. Thanks once again; it was a marvellous experience.
