Whether you want to run an in-school creative writing workshop or you just want an author meet-and-greet, there's nothing I love more than going into local schools and working with teachers and students.
Author meet-and-greets usually last between forty-five to sixty minutes and consist of twenty-to-thirty minutes to speaking and then twenty-to-thirty minutes of question and answers from students.
In class workshops entail me coming into classrooms and working directly with students on the craft of writing. Schools and teachers can select workshops from a list of topics and use my services in one of three ways.
Workshop one topic for one or more grades during one school day.
Workshop one topic for one or more grades during one school day; I return another day to run a different workshop for the same classes.
Workshop one topic for one or more grades during one school day; I return another day and guide the students to form "critique groups," where they learn how to offer and receive critical feedback in a safe environment.
For more information about school visits and my day rates, contact me! I'd love to hear from you.
