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.
"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
