Nadia is a very engaging presenter and quickly built a rapport with the students. The group enjoyed Nadia’s readings of her books and discovering that her characters were inspired by her own life and experiences. They were very engaged with the letter writing activity which showed them that they have a voice and the means to be heard.

Teachers' feedback, CBCA Bookweek 2022
Thank you for running such an awesome workshop, and being our children's literature champion. I had kids sharing their stories with their parents when they got back to the library, they loved it!

Perth Festival, February 2022
We loved hosting Nadia for our Children’s Book Week event. She thoroughly engaged with the children, and involved them in her whole fun and colourful presentation. I have no doubt that they all went away inspired to write their own stories!

Thank you for doing such an excellent job at the Armadale Young Writers' Awards Writers' Workshops. The children certainly came away with the skills and inspiration to create their stories because of your passion, warmth and positive interaction throughout the workshops.

"Nadia was a pleasure to work with. Her preparation prior to the Festival ensured that the guest authors were well versed in what they would discuss and the format of their sessions. She created a warm and welcoming ambience on stage and involved all the participants equally. She was a calm and reassuring presence for our novice presenters and they all had a very positive experience thanks to her assistance. Nadia has a professional and engaging manner and creates a great rapport with all those she works with. We would be happy to recommend her for other public speaking engagements and festival events."

"Nadia has shared her story with schools around WA and speaks to students about the writing process. I'm not sure I've ever met anyone so passionate about books and writing! Don't miss your chance to book Nadia to come to your school - her message is powerful and she'll get your students excited to write their stories too!"
“Thank you for inspiring our students to read, write and be kind. Thanks again for an awesome week of talks and workshops.”
English Department, Darling Range Sports College
"You were fantastic, Nadia! You should have seen the writing the year ones did when they got back to class! Letters included requests for the school to have a robot fighting bay on the verandah, a man-eating shark tank, and a slime/volcano making table. Thank you for an amazing session."
