School visit pricing

Prices are £450 for a full day of a maximum of 3 sessions. A single hour-long session is £300. Travel expenses by train are payable by the school, as well as accommodation costs if the travel time is over 3.5 hours. I am local to the West Midlands. These rates follow the Society of Authors’ recommended rates and take into account the administrative work required before and after an event.

I also offer Skype talks at a rate of £175, and I send signed, personalised bookplates and postcards for each student in advance of Skype talks.

School or library visits or talks via Skype can be arranged by contacting me at

I take a £100 deposit on booking to cover travel costs. I’m covered with Public Liability Insurance through Imaging Insurance and the Society of Authors, and I have a basic DBS check (please be sure to ask if you would like me to bring the certificate along to the event). I provide an invoice for payment via BACS. If additional administrative forms are required before payment, an admin fee of £25 will be charged.
