I’m now available to become a Patron of Reading.
My short bio (which is also on the Patrons Available page): Laura Lam is a writer of science fiction and fantasy for teens and adults with Tor/Macmillan. She’s the author of the award-winning Micah Grey series (Pantomime, Shadowplay & Masquerade) for teens and upcoming thrillers False Hearts & Shattered Minds for adults. She’s very interested writing diversity and making sure everyone can see themselves reflected in fiction. She’s available to be a patron for Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, or Edinburgh based schools.
Patrons of Readings are writers who partner with a chosen school for at least one year. Essentially, I would work with a school to foster a love of reading for pleasure, as a sort of antidote to the constant pressure of tests within schools. I’d do occasional visits (most of which are paid), and also coordinate a few other activities (which are volunteer based), such as writing newsletters, making book quizzes, etc. More information can be found on the Patron of Reading website.
So, if you work for a school local to me or know someone who does, please consider getting in touch, either with me directly or via the Patron of Reading website. If you’re not looking for a Patron of Reading but would still like to invite me for a visit, please see my Visits & Events page for more details.
