SCHOOL TALKS & WORKSHOPS WITH A DIFFERENCE
INSPIRING KIDS THROUGH THE POWER OF WORDS & STORIES
All of Susannah McFarlane’s series have one thing in common – they empower and inspire young children to discover a love of stories and uncover the power found in words.
Susannah creates stories that kids love – and she helps kids create and tell their own stories. Contagiously energetic and inspiring, and linked to key curriculum objectives, Susannah’s workshops for primary school students take kids’ reading and writing to a new level of engagement and enjoyment.
Whether you’d like her to run a writing workshop or an author talk, Susannah can work with your school to develop or adapt her packages to suit your students’ needs.
Praise for Susannah’s Workshops:
‘As both writer and publisher, Susannah brings an amazing insight into the world of books for children. Her knowledge of what it takes to potentially hook young readers onto a lifetime of reading is broad and incisive – she has been an impressive speaker at our Professional Development events for teachers and librarians.’ – The Kids’ Bookshop
‘Susannah has just completed her hugely anticipated, second stint as our Writer in Residence. [Her] story writing sessions were a resounding success once again, with students enthused and engaged by Susannah’s good-humoured and knowledgeable approach to writing and publishing and her willingness to share it. Their only question is, how soon can she come back again?’
– Ardoch Youth Foundation and Seaford Park Primary
‘Susannah spoke to students about her journey from school girl to successful author. She proved to be a lively and engaging speaker, connecting strongly with our students. Her energy and strong communication skills allowed her to capture the interest and enthusiasm of not only our Junior School students, but also our Senior School Literature Club students.’ – Ruyton Girls’ School
