Calling all teachers and librarians!
I'm scheduling author visits for the 2014/2015 school year and I want you!
Author visits are a great way to engage your kids and your community in the art and joy of writing. But you know that already. What you might not know is how much I love to visit schools and libraries. Writing is my greatest passion, and that includes talking about it with readers, non-readers-- quite frankly, anyone who will listen. It's fun! It's necessary. Everyone has a story. Let's help them tell it!
Thanks to my crazy life, I offer:
- Talks about my writing career, animation, film, comic books, and more.
- Writing workshops-- I can show you kids how to come up with story ideas and shape their work into a useful three act structure. These sessions are storytelling improv, with kids sharing their ideas to move the narrative forward. It's hectic, hilarious, and invigorating for all involved.
- I like to tailor my visits to your needs. I come from a family of teachers, so I know this is key. What's in your curriculum? Let's see how we can address it together.
I'm setting a goal of two school visits per month, possibly three. So far I have space available this September, and a slot in October as well. I will be in the New York area in November, so that's a possiblity as well. If you are interested in other dates, let me know.
I love to travel, so don't let distance be an obstacle. To date I've done visits in California, Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Nevada, Washington D.C. and Louisiana. And the list keeps growing. You can read more about my visits here.
Sound interesting? Drop me a line and let's discuss and make 2014 is the year of the author visit!
