Children’s Feedback After An Author Visit

Jane Hunt, Catapult PR

Despite having won 23 awards, met some fascinating celebrities and lived a little bit of the high life during my years on this earth, nothing has made me happier than receiving this feedback from the children at a school I visited in December.  Hopefully, we can encourage more schools to allow their KS2 children to have this experience of an author’s visit, although this school has now also instigated our brand new Befana Drama Creative Writing Workshops, which we can also now offer.  Read on to find out how inspired and happy the children felt after my visit. It’s truly inspiring for me and will underpin all that I put into future visits and workshops.
