School and Library Visits
MEET THE AUTHOR VISITS
(Full or Half Days)
I enjoy visiting schools to read my books, tell the stories behind the books, talk about the writing process, discuss how a book is published, answer questions, and get kids excited about writing. I am glad to visit individual classes, a grade level, or the entire school. I will gladly customize my visit to the needs of your students and/or school. Face-to-face and virtual visits are available.
In addition to author visits, I am also available to lead writing workshops for student writers and in-service training for faculty members.

“Your class was a turning point for me in my writing. You are such a gifted, generous and kind teacher, who really made me see structure, scene, and pacing. When I took your class things finally began to click for me as a writer.”

Rob Sanders not only taught our students about writing, he inspired them to write. His practical, hands-on instruction engaged our students, helped them see a professional writer in action, and gave them a chance to write like pros, too.
