Authors can add a new dimension to English and literacy lessons by talking about the process that turns an idea into a finished book. They can use their own experience to illustrate how they structure plots, develop characters and weave in background information. In addition, many authors are willing to run workshops to help your students increase their own writing skills.

An author visit can help other courses too. Non-fiction authors are experts on the subjects they write about, and many novelists have extensively researched the periods and places where they set their stories. Their experience at presenting ideas and information in ways that capture the reader's attention can help bring these subjects to life for your students.
