WHAT AGE GROUPS DO YOU PRESENT TO? Over the years the audiences for my presentations have ranged from Year 2s all the way up to university students and adult writers. Also people in line at the shops, love a good chat.
DO YOU OFFER TALKS OR WORKSHOPS OR BOTH? I offer a range of talks and workshops! My sessions can cover the basic ins and outs of creating comics, to writing and storytelling talks, to workshops covering the techniques used in visual storytelling and more. Email me for a chat!
DO YOU TEACH ILLUSTRATION? I don’t but mostly because I can’t draw. Professional artists have referred to my illustrations as “nauseating” and “childlike” so I stick to writing comics not drawing them!
