School Visits

One of my favourite things about being an author is that over the years I have been in contact with thousands of people, from children to adults, and have talked to them about my passion for books, writing and creativity. You can have a look at my vast professional, industry experience over at my professional page.

As a certified trainer, I am aware that when I enter schools that my workshops need to contain curriculum outcomes for the students in order to make the visit as valuable as possible. My talks and workshops are tailored for different year groups, beginning at preschool and going all the way into high school, and are on a variety of subjects. If you are interested, please email me at and I will email you a detailed package of ideas.


“The Grade 5 students were inspired meeting Karen Andrews for our author book visit this year. Her passion for writing and reading was evident as she shared her childhood memories with us. The kids had a fantastic time finding intriguing vocabulary amongst the pages of old books to create erasure poetry. Amazed that they could turn the words from one author into their own unique creative writing piece!” Eltham Primary School teacher
