I regularly visit schools across Victoria and am available to visit schools in other parts of Australia. You can book me for primary and secondary schools, festivals and conferences.
I love running writing workshops. In the sessions participants are encouraged to relax about writing and have fun with language. I believe that every person has the ability to engage with character, to imagine. My aim in every workshop is to draw those stories out of people.
Writing workshop topics include:
- Personal/imaginative writing
- Short story: character, plot, structure and language
- Writing from visual prompts
- Avoiding cliché in writing
Author talk topics include:
- Novels and inspiration for writing
- Humour in storytelling
- Story ideas
I am also available to speak at festivals and conferences.
“Just a word of thanks and appreciation for Cath Crowley’s visit – she was terrific. Sessions were engaging and stimulating. The girls responded extremely well to her bright manner. The material delivered was appropriately pitched and professionally delivered. We will certainly look at using her again next year.” Rhonda Linnell, St Margaret’s School
Thanks for the inspiring workshop.
You… did it with such pizzazz,
All of us packed tightly into the overheated room.” Clara, Williamstown Festival Participant
