All About the Writing Process

If you're really trying to motivate your kids to write (and enjoy doing it), then this presentation can help! Combined with a healthy dose of humor, I'll work through the actual process of how to write (and publish) a book, touching on all the various aspects, from how we generate ideas, the joy of writing, the importance of revision, and the necessity of rejection.

45 Minute Program

 

$300


If you're looking for an author visit program that is interactive and customized for the age of your students, then this is it! In this program, I'll talk about why I made the swap from engineering to writing (they're actually very similar!), how authors get ideas, and how books go from idea to publication. Writing can and should be fun. I enjoy all aspects of writing, and I want to share my path and my love of stories with students. With this 45 minute program, we'll have some time for questions at the end.

Group size limit: 100 students of a similar age group
