Talks



I am always delighted to give talks to groups out and about in Yorkshire. Outline details of three possible talks follow, though if you'd like me to address a different theme, please ask. I ask for a small fee in return and can usually turn out at short notice.

100 Yorkshire Stars
This talk will investigate how a list of the county’s top personalities was formulated in the process of writing the book, Sonnets for Yorkshire Stars. Books will be on display and available for purchase, with 10% of takings going to the organisers of the event afterwards.

Puzzles and poems across the Broad Acres
This talk will investigate the process of research and selection of subject matter for my three books of Yorkshire Puzzles and poetry collection, Sonnets for Yorkshire Stars. The talk will be partly in the form of a puzzle, with a prize for the winner. Books will be on display and available for purchase, with 10% of takings going to the organisers of the event afterwards.

FAKE NEWS: what the Romans span for us
This talk will look at how various Roman emperors made use of political spin, generally to make other Roman emperors seem more awful than they were themselves (warning - some of this could be a little bit rude). My series of Yorkshire books will be on display and available for purchase, with 10% of takings going to the organisers of the event afterwards.



Private tuition in Latin and ancient Greek


I offer private tuition in Latin or Greek for motivated students of all ages who are prepared to travel for their lessons to the Malton area. I can cater for all ability ranges, from beginners to university level.




Writing services


I am able to create custom puzzles or sonnets on request, to suit a particular location or occasion. All I’d need would be a set of information, vocabulary and a theme.




Touchscreen design


I have written many software titles over the years and am able to create touchscreen displays for museums and visitor centres on request. Two examples of my recent work can be found in the World of James Herriot in Thirsk.




 

Latin on request


If you've always wanted to have a Latin motto, or you need to have something translated either into or from the language, please get in touch and I will see what I can do.



If any of these ideas appeals to you, please email me to discuss it.
