"It was great to have someone young and successful to talk to the students - Francesca really connected well with them.
We liked the creative writing exercises and the students found them interesting and stimulating.
The students were clearly inspired by what Francesca said to them and many of them have bought her book!"
L. Forrest, English teacher - The King's School Gloucester
"We were lucky enough to have Francesca give up her time to appear in an assembly during our online teaching. Francesca read the opening chapter of The Firestone and had the children totally captivated. The question and answers session really helped them think about what they could do, in their own lessons at school, to channel their imagination onto a page. Following the visit Francesca sent copies of her signed book to children who wanted to read it - they are already looking forward to reading book 2!
Thank you Francesca from everyone at Ryde.
Ed Marsden, Head of Prep. - Ryde School
“On Thursday 9 December students got the opportunity to meet the published author, Francesca Tyer. We were taught how to use senses to let the reader know what's happening in the story without explicitly telling them. Overall, the experience really got us thinking and was a great opportunity for those who participated. I would highly recommend you give the talented authors books a read as they incorporate reality and fiction in a beautifully intertwining way.

"Francesca ran two very successful workshops with our Year 6 children. They loved hearing her read from The Firestone and enjoyed planning and writing their own stories, inspired by Francesca's work. Several children bought her book and have loved reading it. Thank you!"
