Without wanting to come across as too esoteric, I’ve always considered myself as much a storyteller as a writer.

When my latest book came out, the instore appearances where I got to talk about my travels were always my favourite part of life as a travel author.

Over the years I’ve given talks at literary festivals, at universities and schools and for organisations large and small.

I was also the on-air travel expert for the morning show on Triple J and late evenings on Radio National, both in Australia.

Recently I’ve been presenting seminars for creative writing courses across the UK. Having worked as a writer and a commissioning editor, I can give insights from both sides of the fence.

Maybe you’ve got a speaking gig I might be suitable for.

Get in touch. I’m sure we can work something out.

“Peter Moore’s energy, enthusiasm and expertise is inspiring and engaging. He advised, informed and entertained on writing careers, drawing on examples and anecdotes from years of experience in the field of travel writing.”
