Author visits

I’d love to visit your school, library, literary festival, conference or writing group.  As an experienced ex-teacher, I’m able to deliver writing workshops to suit all levels, from Prep classes to adult writing groups.  Presentations can be tailored to your group’s needs. Let me know well beforehand and I’m happy to chat about pricing and your requirements. 

Fees are the recommended rates set for professional authors by the Australian Society of Authors, but I’m happy to negotiate depending on certain factors.  Click for full list of the Australian Society of Authors’ RECOMMENDED RATES OF PAY for Schools, Libraries & Festivals. 

Latest Testimonial:
It was a pleasure to have Sheryl Gwyther work with our students at The Cathedral School of St Anne and St James in Townsville. Sheryl delivered workshops and presentations to students from years 3 to 9, before guiding our senior students on a three-day writing camp in the rainforest of Paluma. Sheryl’s theoretical knowledge of the writing process was exemplary and her ability to use real-world stimuli to inform her work was inspirational.

Sheryl was generous with her one-on-one feedback to students, culminating in vast improvements in our students’ written expression and creative ideas. She was easy going and relatable to both our staff and students, making it a positive experience for all in attendance. We especially appreciated the vast range of stories, both flash fiction and novels, that Sheryl had written and shared with us. We highly recommend Sheryl!
