Talks & Workshops – Fees

Thank you so much for wanting to book me for a book talk, workshop or storytelling session!

To find out the many different things I can do to educate and entertain you, check out my Talking, Teaching & Storytelling page.

Here are my rates:


Whole School day (max of 3 sessions) = $600
Half day (max of 2 sessions) = $450
Per school session (45 – 60 min max.) = $300

Groups of over 120 may incur additional charges.

Longer and weekly rates for workshops can be negotiated.


A full day workshop (max. 6 hours) = $880

A half-day workshop (max. 3 hours) = $550

An hour long Book Talk or Storytelling Session = $350

Appearance on a panel with other writers = $200 per hour

A Keynote Speech = $1000

Mentoring & Story Doctor consultations = $200 per hour (including travel time if necessary)

If your location is within driving distance of Sydney CBD, I also charge $50 per hour travelling time, plus 63c per kilometre car expenses. If the drive is more than 90 minutes from Sydney CBD, I will need to stay overnight or flights must be paid for (business class if flying time is greater than 5 hours).

If I am required to stay overnight, all my accommodation and meal expenses must also be paid.

I usually find that small writing groups prefer to travel to me. Here is the link to my Appearances page that tells you where and what I am teaching over the next six months

This page is updated regularly – you can either choose to keep an eye on it to see if I am coming to a place near you, or you can subscribe to my VIP Club to receive regular updates in your email inbox.
