AUTHOR VISITS WITH CRYSTAL: Crystal Corocher is an author, poet and publishing professional based in Melbourne, Australia.

Crystal is an Australia Reads Ambassador author and is passionate about diversity in children’s literature. Taking time to discuss the needs of your students and goals for the session, Crystal will tailor an enrichment visit that is both dynamic and memorable; from igniting passion in your most disengaged students to development of gifted writers and thought-provoking student led Q&A sessions – covering all areas of creative writing, publishing and media. Crystal brings a wealth of knowledge to your classroom as an author and journalist who has written and edited her way across print-news, radio, television news and online as well as a background in literacy education, library management and the exciting world of working with some of Australia’s brightest authors as a consulting editor and mentor.
PRIMARY SCHOOLS: As teachers, librarians and parents know, children form many of their attitudes toward reading and writing during Primary School years.

During a consultation prior to any booking, your liaising teacher can expect Crystal to take the necessary time to understand the needs of your student cohort and plan a visit that will best support the goals of your students. Book Readings | Ask an Author | Character Development | Story Starters | Rhyme Time Are just a few of the areas that we can explore in your next booking!
