If you're thinking about inviting me to host a storytelling session or run workshops then here's an opportunity to read feedback from some of the projects I've been involved with.  Please contact me if you'd like to give feedback on an event I've run or you'd like more details about my author visits. 

"Karen took part in Medway libraries children's book festival. She was fun, engaged the children (and adults) and ran an energetic event, which was the highlight of our book festival. We received very positive feedback from the teachers and children, especially as Karen provided follow up materials. We'll definitely book her for future events and to promote reading for pleasure" - Sophie Castle, Community Librarian 
 

"It was fab! Such a brilliant buzz in the Reading Cafe. Kids LOVED IT!" - Jess Barrio, KS1 literacy leader at Granton Primary in Streatham, London. 

"Thanks, Karen. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit" - Sharon Marsden, literacy leader at St Edwards Primary in Romford, Essex. 

Inspired by Karen’s enthusiasm and creative, multi-sensory approach, the children looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, held during our Thursday afternoon “Enrichment” afternoons. There was clear evidence of what they had learned spilling over into their classroom work as the term progressed. At the end of the sessions, Karen and the children presented the books they had produced to parents who commented on the enthusiasm for writing the workshops had inspired in their children.
