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 storytime sessions are best suited for grades prep to year 3.

A 30min to 1hr author talk 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. Also, every child will receive a paperback book and order form to take home.

For younger children, I enjoy incorporating puppetry and music to keep the young ones engaged.

If you are further afield, wherever you are in Australia, I would love to meet your class on Zoom!

How much will it cost?

The Australian Author Association recommends $325 per hour for author school visits, however, I can offer special packages where every child also receives a book, which is exceptional value.

If you would like a Zoom session, just $5 per child includes a book for every child plus a 30 min zoom call with the class. Minimum booking $125

Alternatively, you can book full-day sessions through Speakers Ink.

“Nikki was friendly and engaging from the moment she entered my classroom. The students were captivated as she read her story and then answered their questions.” ~ Mrs Gibson, Year 2 teacher at St Andrew’s Lutheran College
