School Author visits

I am available for school author visits. Having been a primary school teacher for over 5 years, I know how to run engaging, fun and enjoyable workshops and how to inspire creative writing and a love for reading.

Would you like me to run an event in your school?

Where am I available to visit?

I am based in Yorkshire, outside of Leeds, so am primarily available for schools based in West Yorkshire, such as:

  • Leeds
  • Bradford
  • Harrogate
  • Huddersfield
  • Ilkley
  • Wetherby
  • Halifax
  • Knaresborough

However, I am happy to travel further afield than Yorkshire and into nearby counties. I also frequently go back to London and Essex, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are a school outside of Yorkshire.

What does one of my visits include?

One of my visits will include:

  • an assembly for the whole school or KS2
  • enjoyable, engaging and educational workshops with your students
  • an author Q and A
  • me sharing my passion for reading and writing with your students – which I hope to pass on to them
  • a chance to buy signed copies of my book

For further details about one of my visits, or to book, please contact me on hello@jamessteptowe.com.
