school visits by historian, novelist and journalist


Enrich, extend, inspire

Dad - historian, journalist and novelist Paul Letters - is available for school workshops or talks. Paul has written for educational history apps, had two novels published, presented a history hour and a current affairs show for Radio Television Hong Kong and freelanced for the South China Morning Post and educational magazines such as IB Review. So Paul works as a historian in different forms - from archival research for articles and books, to appearing as an expert on BBC TV. You can find out more about Paul at

Workshops will be tailored around ANY historical topic of the school's choosing. For example, if you are studying explorers, a research skills workshop could be created to investigate ‘Why did explorers explore?’ or ‘Who was the most important explorer…in the world ever?’. Experienced (20+ years) in teaching in world-leading schools, Paul even writes whole inquiry units, when requested.

Best of all, your students could be interviewed, and Paul and James would include those recordings in a Dad & Me Love History episode that would be heard by thousands of people around the world!

For older students, Paul offers a talk and/or workshop in a number of areas, including on Creative Writing Skills (fiction or nonfiction), When is Fiction not Fiction?, The Historical Novel and Truth, or History: How Do We ‘Know’ What We Think We Know?
