School Visits

Welcome to Julia Edwards Books!

In a normal year, Julia speaks to between two thousand and four thousand children.  At the height of the pandemic, she was approached by a school requesting a virtual visit, and has since visited schools all over the UK via Zoom, Teams and Google Classrooms. She prefers face to face visits, but she is happy to offer virtual visits for schools too small or too distant for her to visit in person from Salisbury.

Julia also recently had a visit from her first ever home-schoolers, which worked extremely well. If you would like to do this, please get in touch.

Julia offers a wide range of face-to-face workshops, including a historical whistle-stop tour for any number of KS2 children, class-sized historical workshops for KS2 based on The Scar Gatherer books, an inference workshop based on Unlucky for Some, and workshops for any age targeting specific skills such as how to write dialogue, how to evoke setting, and how to edit. She is very happy to be flexible: in the same week in March 2022, she taught workshops to children in Y1 and 2 as well as students in Y12 and 13, with smattering of Y7 and 8 in between.

She has also recently devised a new scheme for primary schools, called the Pentathlon Writing Programme, to help children rebuild their writing confidence and stamina after the disruption to learning caused by Covid.  Click here for more information.

Download the latest workshop lists via the buttons. If you would like a workshop on a topic not covered on these lists, please contact Julia to ask. (Her recent Y12/13 session was devised specifically around what the students were studying.) There is no additional fee for this, and Julia is glad of the excuse to devise new sessions.

Julia has also worked as a Patron of Reading in a number of schools prior to Covid. You can find out more about what this involves here, and about the scheme in general on the Patron of Reading   website. Julia loves working as a Patron of Reading and would be delighted to work with another school on this scheme in the future. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss this with her.
