Meet Wes Magee

Here in Yorkshire we are very lucky to have the poet and author Wes Magee living right on our doorstop.

Wes Magee

These sessions are very flexible and can cover all keystages from 1 to 4.

For younger children Wes will introduce himself and talk about how he became an author and poet. The children will be able to ask questions and recite any poems or short stories they have written (you can scan and email any work your class has have done for Wes to show or read on the day)

For older children Wes can talk about book creation and the process of writing a book or a series of poems. Wes always welcomes any requests.

These sessions are great for book and  poetry week but must be booked well in advance due to his popularity.


The virtual visit will last between 30 and 50 minutes, depending on the amount of participation you would like your pupils to have. The virtual visit can be with any size group, large or small, although obviously the size of the group will influence the opportunities that individuals have for asking questions etc. Alternatively your visit could be split into two shorter sessions should you wish.
