Arranging for an author to visit your school is a fantastic way to encourage pupils to delve into books, learn to enjoy reading for pleasure, and give them the confidence to pick up a pencil and start creating stories of their own.

However, these visits can be difficult and confusing to arrange… until now!

For this new school year I’ve created a simple way for you to book award-winning children’s author, Tommy Donbavand (me!), for a visit you will never forget!

I have prepared THREE unique themed days for you to choose from:

  • Scream Street (write scary stories certain to make you shake!)
  • Comic Capers (create hilarious comic strips and graphic tales!)
  • Doctor Who Day (devise time traveling adventures for the Doctor!)

Just pick the theme you want and email Tommy at to agree on a mutually convenient date (don’t delay – my calendar fills up fast!)

Then, on the big day, simply set aside your usual school timetable (just for the day, I promise!) and get everyone – pupils and staff alike – involved in the creative fun!

Tommy will work with as many pupils as possible during the day. The writing workshops work best with a maximum of two classes at a time (around 60 pupils). Bigger school? Fear not – grab a laptop, and we’ll Skype the session through to everyone else live!

You will also receive a special author pack of classroom activities to run on the day while your pupils wait their turn, plus details of how to follow-up on and make the most of Tommy’s workshops. You get to keep all this information – crammed with story starters, writing tips, ideas for characters, reading games and more – to use, year after year!
