Author visits

I am happy to provide workshops or presentations for groups of all sizes. I have worked with children from kindergarten through high school, as well as adults, and have presented in formal settings and in some that are much less so.

Some of the workshops available:

*Becoming an Author: I describe the paths authors follow, from childhood to publication. I touch upon the writing process, revision, pitfalls, and successes.

* The Life of a Book: Using No Castles Here and Come Fall as examples, I discuss the steps authors go through from the first idea of a story to its ultimate publication.

* Sparking Ideas for a Story: In a workshop environment, I demonstrate how one can use events that happen in each person’s every day life to create a work of fiction. (Limit: 25 participants.)

* Revision: Using concrete examples, I discuss the multiple steps authors take, and each step’s purpose, to go from a rough draft to a polished story.

* Writing About Many Cultures: I discuss how someone from one culture can create stories that include characters from a diversity of cultures.

I can also tailor any presentation or workshop to suit the venue’s needs, covering a wide range of topics related to writing, reading, or being an author. In addition, I do joint presentations with other authors and illustrators. A partial list of these is available at Write Up Our Alley.

Fees: Within Connecticut, $200 for a one hour workshop; $500 for a full day (up to 3 workshops). Outside Connecticut, $250/ $600 plus transportation costs; if I need to stay overnight, room and board as well. There is an additional fee for evening presentations after a day’s workshop.
