What happens at a school visit?

Usually (2) things: grade-level assemblies and writers’ workshops. During assemblies, I share my writing journey, the struggles along the way, and show students how to find that one amazing book that will make them not totally hate reading. At writer’s workshops, I teach your students a story-building or prose technique taken from my own process, all with worksheets/samples/mentor texts included!

I also LOVE doing “Author Cafe” lunches with small groups, and frequently run Social Studies workshops for units with tons of nerdy sources!

HOw much does it cost?

Every school has different schedules, so specific sessions can be adjusted to meet your needs. 

A full-day visit is $900 and includes:

  • A personalized promo video to show students/teachers. Sample here.

  • Any number of large or small group presentation(s)

  • Writer workshops with individual classes or grade levels

  • Social Studies/research workshops with classes or grade levels

  • Book signing, Q&A, and many hilarious group photos

*Travel expenses for schools over 50 miles away also apply

Half-day visits are available at $500, if I’m able to book (2) in the area.
