There’s nothing better than when I get to share my love of writing with students. My school programs are interactive, fast-paced and can be customized to appeal to learners of all ages. Calling upon my 11 years of teaching experience, I’m able to link my visits to relevant writing lessons.

Before the visit, we will discuss exactly what you’re looking for, so I can provide a program that’s tailor made to fit your needs. I can also provide teachers will follow-up materials so that the learning can continue after I leave.

Some of my most requested program topics include:

Building Characters Readers Will Love

Using Powerful Words to Pack a Punch

Making Nonfiction Non-Boring

While programs can be presented in large assembly gatherings, it’s often more beneficial when groups include 60 or fewer students and everyone has a place to do some writing.

Speaking fees:

$150 for a one-hour program

$100 per additional one-hour program scheduled on the same day, up to four total programs

No travel expenses charged for schools within 60 miles of my home in Tacoma, Wash.

I’m always happy to talk to teachers and administrators to come up with a visit plan that fits your needs and budget. Drop me a note and let’s see what we can do!
