As Heather Hammonds Creative Services I
am available for author school visits, for both primary and secondary
schools. I am an experienced advertising copywriter who can provide
copy for small businesses and real estate companies. In addition I am
available to work as a voiceover artist for radio, corporate DVDs and
other projects where voicework is needed.
School visits by authors are a fun way to help children connect with
literature, especially at Primary level. I have done many school visits
and was also author-in-residence on a school grant program for Box Hill
North Primary School for a term, together with my friend and co-author
on a number of projects, Julie Haydon. My school visits can be tailored to
suit each school depending on what is required. My standard primary
school visit includes an introduction, how a book is produced, from
idea to finished product, shared storytelling and writing, question and
answer sessions and if there is time, a reading from a book. Visits are
of course also tailored to the requirements of each age group.
Secondary school visits are
generally more involved with in-depth discussions on the publishing
industry and how it functions, how a book is produced and those
involved in its production, writing styles and genres, question and
answer sessions and book discussion. Contact me via my contact page for
bookings and charges.
*** By special arrangement:
I also do school visits with my dog Tess, 'star' of the Dog Tricks and
Training DVD and book. Tess is trained to perform a number of tricks in
a trick show and we are availabe to do school visits in this capacity
and help teach children how to have fun with their dogs, as well as
provide an entertaining show.
Advertising Copywriting For small businesses, coming up
with imaginative snappy advertising copy for newspapers, real estate
magazines, the web and other media, can be a bore. So let me do it for
you! I have written advertising copy for a number of small businesses
including a very successful national advertising campaign for Villaware
Cleanskin Kitchenware, importers of fine kitchenware. To discuss your
advertising needs, visit Heather's Contact page.

Australian voiceover artist for a corporate DVD, advertisement or radio
