School Visits

I currently offer poetry workshops and performances to primary schools in the East Midlands. Online visits are coming soon! I am an ex-teacher and preschool teacher, with an MA in Creative Writing.

I can provide full or half/part day sessions, comprising any combination of:

  • Whole school assembly

  • Joining-in/Activity poems  for EYFS/KS1 (Marjorie the parrot puppet comes too!)

  • Poetry workshops 

  • Outdoor nature-themed workshops (within school grounds)

  • I am open to discussing other ideas for your school

A full school day is priced at £300 plus travel expenses as necessary. I am happy to discuss price adjustments for bookings of more than one day, or across multiple schools within a foundation/trust.

Please see testimonials below, and get in touch for more information. 

Email, or use the contact form, thank you.


You can see me read my poems, and learn lots more about me on and on Twitter @AttieLime. Thank you.
