School Visits

AUTHOR TALKS with Nikki Rogers

Author / Illustrator / Teacher / Speaker

I love to visit schools and kindergartens to share my story and inspire children to be the best they can be.



Are you a Kindergarten or Primary School Teacher?

If you are a school or kindergarten on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, or Toowoomba area I would be delighted to visit your school.

My author talks and story time sessions are best suited for ages 4-years-old up to grade 6.

For kindergarten and prep, I enjoy incorporating puppetry and music to keep the young ones engaged.

For grades 1-3, a 30-45 minute author presentation can include a story, discussion about writing a book, samples of first draft illustrations, question and answer time, and some drawing fun or craft together. This style presentation is best suited to single class sizes.

For grades 4-6 I can present a 45 min -1 hour author presentation. This can be single class sizes or as an assembly up to 200 students.

If you are further afield I would love to meet your class on Zoom!

How much will it cost?

Visit the Australian Author Association page for recommended rates for author school visits.

I can offer special packages which include craft activities and an option for every child to receive a book or a set of books for your library. Please contact me and let me know if you want to know more or get a quote.

If you would like a Zoom session, just $7.50 per child includes a book for every child plus a 30-45 min zoom call with the class. Minimum booking $185. (Anywhere in the world!*)
