Visiting Author Programme

The AISA Visiting Author programme is a very practical way in which schools can work collaboratively to implement a programme that will be of benefit collectively as well as for each individual school.  Due to the high cost of international travel to Africa, for many schools in the AISA region bringing out an international author is prohibitively high.

The Visiting Author Programme enables schools within a sub-region of Africa to jointly engage an author that will spend up to a week in each school, working with students and teachers to share stories and experiences as well as run training sessions for teachers and librarians. AISA provides funding to the schools which significantly reduces the travel cost burden on each school, ensuring that our students still receive the benefits and inspiration that these author visits provide. 


AISA coordinates this programme whose objective is to provide a vibrant, engaging learning experience for the whole school community; students, parents and teachers.

  • Participating schools must be AISA Full Member Schools with current membership;
  • AISA pays round-trip airfare for the author from their home to each participating school;
  • AISA pays for visas and other costs related to travel;
  • Each host school will negotiate and pay professional fees directly to the author;
  • Each host school pays for all on-site expenses including the author’s accommodation, local transport etc;
  • Each host school pays AISA US$825 as a participation fee. There should be no less than three schools per visit (or if fewer schools are involved, the participating schools will be required to pay the equivalent of three schools’ participation fees i.e. $2,475).
