Author Talks & Writing Workshops

Michelle Morgan - Tuesday, February 06, 2018

In between writing projects, I'm available for Author Talks and Writing Workshops.

Author Talks - Writing historical fiction for teens – inspiration, research and writing process - accompanied by Powerpoint presentation of historical photos and one or two readings.

Writing Workshops – how to develop story, characters, setting, turning points etc
Editing Workshops - review of story, characters, setting etc and line editing
Writing exercises are included in both workshops with positive feedback to students

My Author Talks are suitable for ages 10+ and the Workshops are suitable for Years 6 to 9, but can be adapted for higher grades and adults. As well as being a published author, I have Secondary English teaching qualifications and have had considerable experience giving author talks and running writing workshops in schools, public libraries, bookshops and other venues.

Please email me at for more details.
