Angela Marie James

Angela Marie James - storyteller


I am a performance poet and storyteller, and a multi-genre author of books for both children and adults.

I have experience of visiting nurseries, primary and secondary schools and deliver interactive and engaging workshops.

I can deliver assemblies, workshops to individual classes/year groups or virtual sessions. The workshops cover topics such as animals, the Titanic, war, conflict, engineering and spooky poems/stories, as well as poems from my upcoming children’s poetry book series, I Don’t Want To (titles include I Don’t Want to Go to Bed, I Don’t Want to Eat That and I Don't Want to Go to School).

I offer both in-person visits and for those too far to travel to; I offer virtual visits. I am based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.

I am also the Chair of Governors at a primary school, with Level 1 Safeguarding.

I have an Enhanced DBS certificate and am registered on the DBS Update Service.
