Event Services

 

Our Complete Service for School Events:

 

 

We bring Authors & Illustrators in to schools to engage directly with children, teenagers, families and teachers. Whether you want to host a single visit or a full week of events, establish a Writer or Artist in Residence, run creative writing workshops, or have a storyteller come in . . . we can help.

 

Our Complete Service includes helping you select Author(s) & Illustrator(s) and arranging a programme for the day. We will take you through your initial booking enquiry and confirmation, supply books, and even help run the event itself.

 

We always accompany our authors on visits (where time and distance permits*) and provide schools with the following:

 

  • Author/Illustrator bio and book blurbs

 

  • Sample chapters or excerpts to be read in classes before event

 

  • 15% Discount for library / classroom books

 

  • 15% Staff Discount for all book purchases

 

  • Top Tips for Successful Events from an Author’s & Illustrator's Perspective

 

  • Letter Home/Pre-Order Forms for the students to take home, and for posting in the school newsletter and on the school website / blog / social media

 

  • Secure Online Pre-Ordering to reduce paperwork and admin for schools

 

  • ‘Meet the Author’ Posters for printing and promoting at school

 

  • A comprehensive Event Check List covering logistics and equipment (so you know exactly who, what, where, when, and how things will happen on the day)

 

  • Set-up, staff and books for Author/Illustrator signing at the event, and provide post-event order fulfilment with signed books (as available)

 

  • We also help you oversee the event all the way through to ensure smooth running of the day

 

  • All this means that you have only to provide the space, assemble the audience & publicise the event using the materials provided

 

  • *In the rare cases where time and distance prohibits our accompanying our Authors & Illustrators, we can provide our support materials plus books on a Sale-or-Return basis
