Dee Shulman is an author/illustrator of over 50 books, including the epic teen Parallon trilogy and the immensely popular Polly Price series.
"One of the things I love most about visiting schools is the chance to talk directly to people who like reading as much as I do. It also means I get the opportunity to meet aspiring young writers (and illustrators) and give them a few pointers in the right direction."
Dee loves going into schools and sharing her experiences and methods with children of all ages, and she's keen to encourage their own creativity. Talks and demonstrations are
normally accompanied by writing and/or drawing workshops. These are designed in consultation with teachers. Workshops tend to work best in class-sized groups, talks/demonstrations can be to larger numbers.
