SongStarz Author Talks Fundraiser

Thank you for considering supporting this fundraiser.

SongStarz is a series of books, songs, musicals for schools and related media which centre on the adventures of Issy, Lola and Cass as they take part in the SongStarz television competition. 

The series was created by F.J.Lily, a.k.a Fiona Lily who is waiving author talk fees July-December 2022 in return for donations to the SongStarz DEC Fundraiser for Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. 

Who are the SongStarz Author Talks for?

The talks are for community groups, writing groups, friendship groups or any other group who may be interested in the inspiration and creative process of the SongStarz books, songs and musicals and who want to donate to a good cause.

What Are the Author Talks about?

Author talks will touch on the challenges and 'best bits' of creating SongStarz and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions about what's gone into creating a 15 book, 100 song, 2 musical 'world'.  Talks can be tailored to include readings, focus more on writing or songwriting etc, depending on the group.

How Long Will The Author Talks Last?

Talks will last approximately 45 minutes with 30 minutes of talk from F.J.Lily and 15 minutes for questions and answers.

Is there a limit to Attendees?

 Talks will be 'virtual' but we'd ask to keep groups sizes to less than 20 attendees to enable questions to be asked and answered in the time.

How much are the Author Talks?

F.J.Lily is waiving talk fees for 2022 in return for a minimum donation of £100 per talk for DEC. All donations will go straight to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal via the SongStarz Just Giving page (we'll send you the link nearer the time). If you have 20 attendees, thats £5 per person, or at 10 attendees it's £10 per person, pretty good value for a unique insight into the SongStarz creative and development process and of course you can donate more if you wish.

Sounds good, how do we book?

Register your interest in the form below and we'll send you a link in June 2022 to where to Donate, and details on how to book a talk from July onwards. Talks will be offered on specific dates (generally Tuesday and Thursday evenings in July through to December 2022). Availablity will be limited as these are live talks (not pre recorded) and will be on a first come first served basis.
