Introduction to G L Twynham

Author of The Thirteenth Series and Children’s Motivational Speaker. 

Following a successful seven years, during which I’ve spoken to over 50,000 students in schools around the country, from reception through to University, I’m in the process of organizing my 2016/17 schools workshop schedule.

I would like to introduce you to the benefits of a visit by myself to your school/event.

I am the author of the young adult sci-fi books The Thirteenth Series. I’ve dedicated a large amount of time to engaging students with inspirational, fun speeches and workshops to motivate future writers and help children lacking in confidence to see that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible!

I’m the Winner of the Lincolnshire Young People’s Book Award in 2010. Voted for by children.

In 2013 I created the Legacy Project working simultaneously with 16 primary schools across Nottinghamshire to create futuristic newspapers.

I’m also an Ambassador for Variety, The Children’s Charity helping them launch their first in-schools charity event, Sunshine Week.

In early 2014 I worked alongside Lincolnshire Young People’s Book Awards, and the Aviation Heritage Centre engaging with schools across Lincolnshire. I was also the Schools Ambassador for Lincolnshire Inspired running a 360 student event on May 8th at the Lincoln Drill Hall.

I have been working with Georgia Twynham for many years now on a variety of festivals including The Lincoln Book Festival, Wolds Words and more recently Lincoln Inspired. Georgia has completed many schools events for us from workshops to readings and we have always found her to be very enthusiastic, passionate and a great inspiration to young people of all ages. It was for these reasons that when Lincoln Inspired – a festival of literature, performance and art was launched in 2013 that we asked Georgia to become the schools’ patron for the festival. She has now been in this role for two years, visiting schools and also has just been our schools headliner at the Lincoln Drill Hall. Georgia is professional, committed to her work and feels very strongly about literacy, books and working with young people to encourage, nurture and inspired their creativity and skillsets. I look forward to working with Georgia in the future as Inspired develops and can highly recommend her as an asset to any creative schools programme of work.

Georgia really inspired the children that came to the WW2 workshops, and made them realise what an enormous sacrifice young men and women made so that they could live their lives the way they do today and that they were real life Superheroes of their time.  Feedback after the event was that all the learning aims of the session were met and exceeded with some unexpected outcomes – one child who was said to be clever but had “gone off the rails” recently was seen to be so involved with the session that he helped others and then sat and read one of Georgia’s novels whilst waiting for the others to finish!
