Richard delivered an excellent narrative writing workshop to our senior students yesterday. He is a warm, relaxed and engaging speaker, so the girls responded enthusiastically to him, asking questions and making notes on his very helpful advice. Many of them said afterwards that the session had inspired them to begin writing their own narratives, or to revise those they had already begun, using Richard’s tips. According to one Year 12 student, “It really broke down how to construct a narrative and how to start writing a story from scratch.” I would definitely book Richard again.
St Rita’s College – July 2020
Richard’s presentation and workshop with our Year 9 extension students was excellent. By the end of the two-hour session, he had covered the most important aspects of narrative writing and helped students to find their story. Richard inspired our students, including our more hesitant writers, to embrace the power of literature. His presentation was engaging and tailored to both the topic and the needs of our learners. This is the second year he has presented at our College and we will continue to book Richard in the future.
St Thomas More College – August 2020
Richard Yaxley worked in two formats across two days with our students – lecture style teaching and small group writing workshops. His input has been very favourably received by students and staff alike. His great input is having direct, positive impact on the students’ current English learning unit. I would definitely recommend Richard!
Iona College – August 2019
Richard was a great speaker who engaged boys and parents. He had a perfect manner with the audience and they enjoyed the evening.
Brisbane Grammar School – April, 2017

Sheldon College, April 2016
