Events● What I can offer:
If you would like me to appear at a school, literary festival, or other public event, I am more than happy to oblige. I have received professional events training from the National Literacy Trust and I am confident I can deliver a compelling live event. I have appeared at secondary schools and public libraries all around the UK.
I charge a fee for live events, and also ask for travel costs to be covered. Rates depend on whether I’m appearing for a half or full day. I am represented by Authors Abroad. If you wish to book me for an event please contact Trevor Wilson on +44 (0) 1535 656015, or email him at email@example.com
The more details about the planned event you can give, the better: these include whether the event is envisioned as an interview, a writing workshop, a panel discussion, or a straightforward talk; what size the room is; how large you expect the audience to be; and any technical details such as whether you have audio equipment or a projector. I’m happy to sign books that are sold at events; it will be possible to arrange these sales via Authors Abroad.

“Leo’s work with our key stage three students was fantastic. Whether presenting a potted history of ghosts in fiction to a hall full of year seven students, answering (often challenging) questions about his approach to writing or working closely with pupils of all abilities, Leo was engaging, energetic and erudite. The kids thought he was cool and staff described him as inspiring. A brilliant day – if you want to get your students writing creatively, Leo’s the man.”– Chris Earl, Framwellgate School Durham.
“If your pupils look forward to their next author visit – and whose don’t? – make sure Leo Hunt is at the top of your list. He’s fresh on the scene with bags of charisma and made a big impression on our boys last month.” – Anne-Katrin Muhlberg, Radley College.
“Our ‘Reading Hack’ group were delighted to hear of Leo’s favourite childhood books, memories and how he started to write. Leo was at ease with the audience and promised a further visit once the new book is out. For young writers meeting a young author is truly inspiring.” – Judith Zajac, Newcastle City Library.
