One of my greatest areas of expertise is the hosting and the running of literary events. These include Readers’ Days, where I am usually the’ front man’ for the whole thing, running readers’ and writers panels’, making the day seamless and fun. I am very knowledgeable about the world of books and reading, and am able to communicate my enthusiasm to an audience of any size, from 20 to 200, so that they feel comfortable enough to make their own contributions to the general debate.
I have hosted Readers’ Days and literature events all over the UK. My particular skills are in having a conversation with an author/writer on a platform or stage and making it look informal and fun. Writers have included (amongst hundreds of others) Andrew Motion, Sarah Waters, Joanne Harris, Val McDermid, Michael Holroyd and Simon Armitage.
Whatever your budget please contact me to discuss how I can bring the best out of your visiting writer(s) and your event.
