Writing with Grit

Beth will show how young writers can reimagine and relive their own experiences to write a story only they can share. Using clear steps, she'll showcase the steps to bring a story from concept to page. This presentation will inspire even reluctant young writers to harness their power to be the hero of their own stories.

Beth loves sharing her passion for storytelling! Like her books, Beth's presentations are filled with humor and heart. Find out straight from the author how one moment of kindness changed her life forever, and how her books honor that moment. Young writers and readers will be inspired to find their own stories and bring them to life. This visit is interactive and includes time for questions and answers.

"By the time she was finished and answered questions, not one kiddo was ready to go. They all wanted to stay and ask more questions and spend more time with her (and it wasn’t an avoidance technique) I really loved how she focused on the idea of 'One moment of kindness' can really make a difference in someone’s life and also how she gave them pointers on how to be a good writer without them even realizing that’s what she was doing. She really made a positive impression on our kiddos!" ~ Sue Wickenheiser, Library Media Specialist, Weigelstown Elementary

"What struck me most was that one of my students took away the importance of words--not only the written word, but the power of our spoken words." ~ Fifth-grade South Eastern School District teacher Lisa Moose, as printed in the Delta Star

About the Author

Beth Vrabel won a story contest in fourth grade and promptly decided writing was what she was going to do with her life. (To tell you the truth, she got fourth place.)

Beth is author of Cybils'-nominated Caleb and Kit, ILA award-winning A Blind Guide to Stinkville, the Pack of Dorks and The Newspaper Club series. To Tell You the Truth releases in June 2021. When she’s not visiting schools to talk about storytelling, Beth’s in New England with her family, two over-Instagrammed dogs and six chickens.
