Author Visits

As a teacher currently running Y6 Creative Writing Courses, I am very familiar with the workings of schools. 


For 2024, my school visits explain the motivation behind The Runaway Children of Chennai and The Secret Children of Mumbai, both written to raise awareness of homelessness in India.

With a passion for inspiring young people to write creatively, my  visits also focus on the process of writing and publishing a book; the journey from the author’s first idea to the book on the shelf.

There is an option to end with a creative writing workshop and an invitation to enter my annual short story competition


£50/class (min 2 classes) plus 2 signed books for the school library.*

(Appropriate for Y4-8)

Sessions last between 45-55 minutes (this can be adjusted to suit the timetable).

To make the most of the visit I would suggest one class at a time in their own classroom to allow for questions (there are usually plenty!)

*Travel costs may apply

Competition time!

I conclude my visits with a unique opportunity for the children: to write a short story with the theme of hope. The winning entries will be published in a paperback book of short stories in June 2024.

What an absolute privilege to have a visit from author Caroline Boxall yesterday.
Book Club with Mrs Boxall changed my whole life (in a good way). I used to hate writing and English, but now I love it. Book Club has made me more confident.
