Schools and colleges across the North of England have booked one of my author workshops - and love them.
Here's a selction of fabulous feedback from some very happy customers:
The students are still talking about you the day after your visit, and they're already asking when they can finish your story.
I am sure you have inspired many of them to write more!
Taylor Wilkinson - Clifton Community School, Rotherham
The workshop was excellent. Matthew had clear aims that he wanted to accomplish to make the workshop worthwhile and it was easy to see that he achieved these with the students.
Our students were learning about designing, naming and creating interesting characters with depth, motivation and back stories that you don’t necessarily disclose to your reader. Matthew also helped students understand effective ways to start a story.
I would recommend Matthew’s workshops to any school, especially those who have students with an interest in writing and potential aspiring authors.

Our Key Stage 3 pupils had the opportunity to work with a local author to help develop their writing skills and see what it takes to write a good story. Matthew delivered a workshop that involved readings from his popular book, followed by interactive activities that explored the characterisation of the characters.
Pupils also looked at the power of the opening sentence of a story, and got the opportunity to create their own opening line to a story that would grab the reader’s attention.
Savio Salesian College (School)
What a lovely session from Matthew Dryzmala, Author of The Bumpkinton Tales.
His second successful Creative Writing workshop today in Speakers Corner.
Matthew gave a great workshop and has helped the students develop their skills ready for their exams. Visits from authors and industry experts are a key part of learning at the college and you can visibly see the benefits it has.
