To book a school visit
First contact is made with me to establish if I am free to travel on the day the school wants.
Then permission for the visit is sought from Anna Boner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three weeks minimum notice is required.
Some months it is more difficult to get funding - October and March being the busiest for writers.
This scheme has allowed me to go as far afield as Donegal and Kerry. One of the great joys of being a writer is experiencing the infectious enthusiasm of so many young people who are interested in reading, and indeed writing. It is a rare privilege.
