Given Covid19, I am now offering virtual visits. This means that schools and community groups can have a short "visit" that is budget-friendly and conducted over video. This has been working really well, with groups able to listen to me telling a story or interview me about my writing. I am also currently working on a middle grade adventure series (I am published as Sophie Draper), so able to read and talk about that too. Please contact me to discuss further (Email: or tel 01332 840007).

Sophie offers a range of workshops around storytelling, performance and presentation skills and writing, for all ages and settings. Please do just enquire.

  • Schools & Colleges
  • Teacher training and conferences
  • Storyteller training - beginner, advanced, group, solo
  • Businesses
  • One to one coaching
  • Creative Writing evening classes
  • Mentoring for both writing and oral storytelling

Feedback from workshop participants:

"I loved the skilful way you teased the storyteller within out to be released on the
Great British Public!"

"Feeling on top of the world after a day's advanced storytelling with Sophie Snell.

I am looking forward to telling my stories at the library - I can hardly wait to get to work!"

"I like the imagery of the "dominos" of the story falling down as each part of the story was told. I had a terrific day and ended up with a new interest."
