What have people been saying?
'Alex is a natural at commanding a room of kids of any age. She engages them with humour, original activities, and a love for books and words. In smaller groups, she makes imagination exploration and story building a game to be enjoyed by all. Highly recommended for author talks, and workshops.'
Tony Wilson - Author
'We have been raving about your ‘Imagination Muscle’ workshop – how spot on it was, how you really engaged the children and gave them time, but then moved on from one activity to another to keep them engaged. So awesome, thanks!'
Jennifer Butler - Teacher Librarian, Caulfield Grammar
'Alex’s presentation was fast-paced, relevant, age-appropriately pitched and, quite simply, inspiring. She offered practical ideas to help our students develop their own ideas and writing habits.'
Ali Vince - Librarian, Seymour College, Adelaide
'Thank goodness for Alex! We now know we have an extra muscle that we can exercise without even leaving our chairs - our imagination muscle!'
Holly - Year 3, Immanuel Primary, Adelaide
