I’m always happy to do events in person or on Skype. I work with students aged 13-18 years old in the UK, Ireland, and internationally.
‘My writing journey’ presentation – follow my experience of writing my first book at the age of 16 from first draft to publication, with images of my original writing. Includes a reading from my latest novel and Q&A session. (1 hour)
‘World-building’ writing workshop – using senses to create atmosphere and setting, with examples taken from writing I did at the age of 18, which later became part of my debut novel. (1 hour)
School or library visits can be arranged by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prices available on request, and follow the Society of Authors recommended rates for in-person visits, with a slight reduction for Skype talks. Travel expenses by train are payable by the school, as well as accommodation costs if travel time is over 3 hours. I am local to the Midlands.
For other events, please contact my publicist at Walker Books, Rosi Crawley at Rosi.Crawley@walker.co.uk.

I’d definitely recommend her for running or taking part in other events.” – Anne Smart, Digital Communications Manager, The University of Nottingham
“Lauren talks so well and was definitely one of the best author visits that we have had at the library.” – Sorrelle Clements, Coventry Libraries and Information Services
