Jordi Kerr

creator and curator of stories

I can provide a range of facilitation services, specialising in working with young adult audiences.

Panel chairing

Curating an interesting conversation on stage requires not just preparation, but intuition, authenticity, and curiosity.

I've moderated panel discussions, refereed debates, and interviewed authors at the Melbourne Writers Festival, Australia's Reading Matters conference, and the National Young Writers' Festival. Whether you have an audience of twenty or twelve-hundred, of adults, young people, or a mix of all ages, I'd be delighted to facilitate an engaging event with them.

'Working with Jordi is an absolute delight. She's thoughtful, well-prepared, well-informed, and takes excellent care of her panellists. She communicates clearly in advance, always takes the conversation to interesting places, and balances the discussion well. I'd recommend her as a chair or moderator without hesitation. I've worked with her several times, and when I see her name on the list, I simply relax -- I know everything will go smoothly.' - Amie Kaufman, author.


training

Do you know a hobbit from a horcrux? How about your AU from your OTP? Want to tweet up a storm or bookstagram like a pro? Whether you're a YA author seeking support in setting up your own online presence, or a teacher wanting to learn more about how today's teens engage online, contact me to discuss training and support options. Professional development support can be provided for individuals, or small groups.
