Author Presentations and Writing Workshops

Meeting up with kids and talking books and writing is simply the best part of being a children’s author. As a kid who grew up believing I wasn’t creative, I have a personal interest in fostering creativity and wonder. My presentations involve laugh-out-loud readings, music, stories (personal and fantastical), audience participation and occasionally a stuffed kakapo.

Sessions can be tailored to suit any age group.

Lisa Nicol is as enchanting as her books, transporting our students (and teachers!) into her magical world.

Amornsee Tawinwong, Assistant Principal, Petersham PS

Lisa writes stories that you can’t put down. Her unique ability to share her process and pass on her skills to students is formidable. We see these techniques appear in students’ writing transforming their engagement and elevating their writing.

Jenny Atkinson, Founder and CEO or LittleScribe

Our students loved meeting Lisa after enjoying her stories. She was well prepared with a captivating presentation. She communicated beautifully with the students and addressed their many questions. Her stories have remained favourites in our Junior School Library.

Katherine Wiebe, Teacher Librarian, Redlands Junior Campus

We had Lisa speak to our year 4-6 students during lockdown book week celebrations. The sessions were much like her books – funny, engaging, quirky and with something for everyone. Lisa adapted each session beautifully to the age group, using her different stories to inspire writing activities and imaginative thinking. Despite the screen being between us and the students, she was super engaging and the girls were captivated for the whole session. The only thing I would have changed would have been to have her in person!! 

Andrea Hogan, Head of Library, Roseville College

Not only are Lisa’s books fabulously entertaining and full of heart, she is an awesome and very engaging presenter.  Her sessions are fun, inspiring and encourage the kids to think and talk about a range of issues whilst having a seriously good giggle too. She is hands down one of our favourite author guests at our children’s book club and an absolute delight to run sessions with.

Rachel Robson, Gleebooks Children’s Literacy Specialist

Lisa’s presentation was highly engaging, entertaining and informative. A fun and dynamic speaker great at plugging into kid’s imaginations.
