School, College and University Visits


Mark Lowery qualified as a primary school teacher in 2003 and is currently working part-time in a school in Cambridgeshire. During his teaching career he has worked abroad and been subject leader for English at a primary school. He travels the country carrying out author visits to primary and secondary school children of all ages and would be happy to discuss any of the following:

  • writing workshops
  • author talks
  • INSET staff training for schools (particularly primary schools).
  • English consultancy work for primary schools
  • literary festivals
  • writer in residency work
  • prize giving/awards events


Here are just a few of the nice things people have said about Mark’s talks:

“Mark went down a storm!  He really gave us a LOT of his time. His presentation style is brilliant. It is quite apparent that he is an experienced teacher as he is totally unfazed by large numbers of children or daft/inappropriate/silly questions. He fielded all the questions superbly and managed the large numbers really well. Much of his presentation has an element of slapstick and his delivery is akin to a stand-up comedian – all of this went down really well with the children.”

– EM – King’s School Winchester

“Super. Entertaining, high energy but with a serious message about writing.”

– DW – Stewart’s Melville, Edinburgh

“Everyone enjoyed it”

– DE – Blatchington Mill, Brighton

“A wonderful day… The pupils have been talking about it ever since.”

– LS – Priory Middle, Beds.

“A great session, the students got a lot out of it”

– SI – Hove Park, Brighton

“…brilliant… great to see the students so engaged, enjoying themselves and producing such imaginative work. They are still buzzing this morning with all they did!

– MR – Homewood School, Ashford
