I regularly give presentations at a wide range of writers’ festivals, schools, universities, libraries, literacy and education conferences and other events. In these talks I cover topics such as graphic novels, the adaptation process, writing and illustration and visual literacy. I also run comic art workshops for adults and for children. 

I have spoken at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, Sydney Writers’ Festival, Brisbane Writers’ Festival, Perth Writers’ Festival, Somerset Festival, Children’s Book Council of Australia National Conference, Emerging Writers Festival, Australian Association for the Teaching of English National Conference and many other events. I have also appeared as a guest lecturer at the University of Melbourne in the English and Education departments.

My speaking style is often described as enthusiastic, passionate and engaging. I like to show plenty of pictures, so it is helpful if venues are able to provide a data projector.
