School visits

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.

Troy Cummings’ visit to our school was wonderful. His presentations were perfect for each individual grade level and very interactive. The enthusiasm for reading and writing his visit has sparked within our building has been tremendous. We can’t wait to have him back again!
