Schools/workshops

Steve has run a zillion creative writing workshops – for all ages from Reception Class to Elders. He has run creative writing workshops in Pupil Referral Units, Hamleys Toy Shop, the Museum of Childhood and open air festivals from Glastonbury to Lamer Tree.

He was Writer-in-Residence for the Dickens 2012 Bicentenary Celebrations, and also for Spread The Word’s Lambeth Walk celebration in 2011.

He has run countless Slam workshops, for groups ranging from Apples & Snakes to The Poetry Society. Here you can see his brand new teachers’ lesson plan (“The Art of Remembering By Heart”) on The Poetry Society’s website.

If you’d like to book Steve for your school or live event, please either leave a comment here with your request AND EMAIL ADDRESS, and he will get back to you. Alternatively, you can message him on Twitter: @stevetasane¬†

    Hi Steve, I am the Librarian at Severn Vale School in Gloucester and have just read “Blood Donors” (still itching!) interested to discover that you do school poetry visits. Could you send me some details please?
    Many thanks!

      Hi Jools – don’t scratch, it’ll make it worse! I love doing schools workshops – and the Blood Donors poems work a treat mixed in with sections from the book! I’ll email you details. Thanks for your interest – and don’t forget Nobody Saw No One!

    Hi Steve, I am just getting “Nobody Saw No-one” out on the shelves. I am librarian/Performance Poet at a school in Bradford. Could you send me details for booking you for workshops. I am especially keen to get our male pupils reading more progressive literature, and I have an inkling you could be just the chap. All the best, David.

      Hi Again Steve – I am having to use this forum as all my emails got wiped over the summer! I find myself in need of a Dickens specialist – could you help? DN

        Hi David – hope you are well. I am indeed a Dickens specialist (sort of; I was writer-in-residence for Dickens Bicentennial Celebrations at Dickens Birthplace Museum, and rewrote/studied/wrote poems about much of his work). Can I help?

    Hi Steve
    I am wondering if you are available to give an author talk at Sandringham School in St. Albans on Wednesday 20th January 2016 at 11.00am – 12.15 -ish. We have a group of yr 7/8 and 9 students here to debate the Children’s Book Award shortlist books and we would like to finish with an author talk.

    Hi Steve,

    We are looking for an author to come and visit our school in Birmingham (Arthur Terry School) and I was wondering if that was too far to ask you to come? Could you email me some details on what you do and when and if you are available as I think our pupils would really enjoy one of your workshops.

    Many Thanks

    Sarah Reoch
