I love visiting grade schools! There's nothing more fun than writing, drawing, and talking shop with a room full of young writers and illustrators. I present a highly-interactive 55-minute assembly that offers a whirlwind look at my process, and ends with us all working together to create ideas for a new book— from scratch! It's a total blast. PLUS: a sneak peek at my next book!
My assemblies scale up and down depending on grade-level. I’ll typically do three assemblies at a full-day school visit: a shorter session for K/1, and two longer assemblies for grades 2/3 and 4/5.
I also offer a variety of workshops for smaller groups, ranging from grades 1-5, that focus on voice/POV, creating a character, mapping out a setting, and finding/generating story ideas.
