It is what you read when you don’t have to that will determine what you will be when you can’t help it.
— Oscar Wilde

School Visits

Working with hundreds of schools and thousands of children over the last half decade, Holly is now available for both large and small group events. Her talks are inspirational, aspirational and encourage children to write, to read and to believe in themselves, while also sensitively tackling difficult topics such as bullying, confidence and anxiety.

Q and As are always welcome.

For ages 9-16.



Having headlined some of the biggest literary festivals in the world, Holly regularly fills 1000+ seat events: including Hay, Cheltenham, Oxford, Edinburgh, Cambridge and the Dubai Emirates festival.

Post-event signings are included.


Creative Writing + Lecturing

Holly runs successful Creative Writing Workshops and Lectures for both adults and children, working with enthusiastic writers to encourage imagination: helping them to come up with ideas, to structure stories and to find their own narrative voice.

By the end of a session, most participants will have a full plot outline for their own novel.
