Author Visits

Josie’s school visits have been described as an “invaluable opportunity for the children to find out about being an author”, as well as feedback from other teachers saying “Josie was very professional and had a lovely approach with the children”, “stimulating and creative” and “the children thoroughly enjoyed Josie’s visit”.

Josie has developed a number of author visits and workshop packages for schools and children’s groups. You’ll love the energy, novelty and enthusiasm which Josie brings.

Read on to find the visit which is right for you.

Once you book an author visit date, your school will have its own dedicated order page on Josie’s website for parents to access directly. All orders are delivered to you on the day of the visit.

Stories, Crafts & Games

Perfect for younger children (KS1), Josie offers Lum and Lum’s Mum author visits with added fun including treasure hunts, arts and crafts and stickers for everyone.

Or join in the sporting fun with an Animalympics warm-up and game – Animalympics Gold Medals to be won! (KS1 and KS2.) 

Josie is an excellent storyteller who connects really well with young children and their parents!

Choose from Josie’s Imagination & Creation Workshop (KS2) or the Animalympics-inspired Poetry Workshop (KS1 and KS2).

Both workshops help children to access their imaginations and create their own stories or verses.

Josie brought lots of stimulating, creative objects to inspire the children’s storytelling. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.
