It is a great privilege to meet and work with young writers! I believe writing and reading is vital to the success and joy of every student, and so I work with you to tailor each visit, presentation, or workshops to your specific needs and hopes. Visits can range from an hour to several days–it’s up to you!
Readings at bookstores that carry my books are free.
School Presentation/Workshop rates (classroom, library, assembly) generally run about $100.00 per hour for local schools. I bring along autographed copies of Reading Beauty that students may purchase.
Schools out of state or two or more hours away–500.00/day, plus travel expenses. I bring autographed copies of Reading Beauty for purchase. If several schools in one geographical area agree to consecutive Author Visits, we can work out discounts!
I prefer to negotiate rates and schedules at least two months in advance. If appropriate, I send student packets to teachers and librarians ahead of scheduled visits.
Please contact me via the form (above) for availability and to discuss the kind of visit you’d like (see Creative Workshops).
