After thirty years of visiting well over a thousand schools, Tim now conducts most of his school events online. He gives talks, readings, Q/A sessions and writing workshops, and his aim is what it has always been – to inspire young people and fire them up with the magic of reading and writing. To book Tim for a school event please email

I have seldom heard a mixed group of young people so spontaneously enthusiastic about any visitor, and they really found your time with them inspiring, and uniquely different. You have opened many new windows of possibility for those to whom you spoke so generously. It is one thing to enthuse minds – but something much more lasting to fire up the human spirit.’
Jeremy Dowling, Chair of Governors, Budehaven School in an email to Tim.

It was a great pleasure to have Tim working with our pupils. He is a fabulous storyteller and an inspiration to our pupils.

‘Inspiring, entertaining…the students were really engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the session.’
