school visits


I really enjoy visiting schools and leading writing workshops and also giving talks about storytelling and writing. Here's what I have done and can do:

Assemblies
Workshops
Classroom/Library Presentations

My typical session is 45 minutes. Below are some of the topics I like to talk about. Since I write for a range of age groups, both middle-school age and high school, I modify these sessions depending on your student's grade level.

Mining Your Imagination: How to Find the Stories Inside You
What's a Plot: How to Tell a Story
How to Develop Your Great Idea: Ten Useful Storytelling Steps
What Should I Write About?: A Series of Prompts
How to Build Strong Characters
How to Make a Poem
Steps for Revision: Lessons in Fearlessness and Finishing
Advice for Aspiring Writers: 20 Nuggets of Practical Inspiration
