Notes about visits
School visits
Here's what schools are saying:

"Children who disliked reading are now reading during playtimes, lunchtimes and registration time! I recommend that
every school should experience a visit from this exceptional author."

"Booking Ed Wicke to come to our school during book week was one of the best decisions I have made as English
Coordinator."

"Ed is a consummate story teller and his lively, madcap stories have universal appeal. Since his visit, I have had lots of
positive feedback from staff, parents and pupils – I would thoroughly recommend Ed to a primary school looking for a
visiting author."

I love visiting schools.  I think I enjoy it almost as much as the children do!  

It's great to see them totally immersed in a story, and then - even better - to hear them
coming up with so many ideas of their own.

I have one major aim for all visits: the children should feel more excited about reading and
writing after I've visited.
How a visit
can help
All the hard work is done by teachers, day in and day out.  Author visits can however
provide a small but useful boost to a school's literary strategy.

Most recent DBS: I have an Enhanced DBS for my work with adults in a
hospice (attached). Visiting authors are not required to have a DBS
and can only obtain a basic DBS through their own request.
