School & Library Visits
I love doing school visits and connecting with teachers and students. I’m available for half-day, full-day, or multi-day visits to schools, libraries, districts, and more.
I do presentations on the writing and publishing process, with an emphasis on the importance of revision; on my journey from reader to non-reader and then to reader/writer again, with an emphasis on inclusive books that today’s students can see themselves in; and on toxic masculinity. All presentations run approximately 30 minutes, with time for student Q&A after.
My rates are $600 for a half day (two presentations) and $1200 for a full day (three to five presentations); I also ask that my travel and accommodations be covered if the presentations are outside the Kansas City area.
That being said, if you’d like me to visit but are worried about the cost, please reach out anyway! I travel often, and sometimes I can arrange visits for free during windows in my travel. I’m very passionate about connecting with students, especially ones who might not otherwise get the chance to see authors in their schools.
