One of the poets whose work is on the IGCSE syllabus is visiting our city (abroad, Europe) and we asked if he'd come to our school to speak to our IGCSE students for 30 mins. or so. He said yes. Now his agent is asking how much we can pay. What is acceptable?
Has anyone had a poet to visit before, and how much did they charge?
He won't be selling books so our fee would be his only income for this visit (he is coming to the city for another event).
Please help! I need to reply to the agent ASAP! Thanks in advance.
