Interested in the Visiting Author Programme?
"We believe such experiences enhance our library and literacy curriculum by helping to develop our students’ writing skills as well as their appreciation of literature."
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.
