Author visits are an incredibly important part of a child's academic life, with the National Literacy Trust reporting (June 2019) that pupils who had an author visit that academic year:

  • Were twice as likely to read above the expected level for their age (31% vs 17%)

  • Were more likely to enjoy reading (68% vs 47%) and writing (44% vs 32%)

  • Were more likely to be highly confident in their reading (37% vs 25%) and writing (22% vs 17%)

“We cannot overstate how important author visits are for sparking a love of reading and writing in children that will ignite their imaginations, enhance their wellbeing and transform their life chances.”

Jonathan Douglas, National Literacy Trust Director

"I can't thank you enough! I enjoyed every single minute of your visit.

I asked the children their opinion and their feedback was: 'It was great!', 'I want to be an author!', 'I loved it!', 'Can I send you my story to edit it? I want to publish it soon'.

I think they loved it as much as I did! You are very inspiring and we can't wait for a second book!"

Miss Lopez, Teacher at Eynsham Primary School
