Award Winning Author Presents Writing Workshops for Middle and High Schools

My workshops are in-depth explanations of how I create my books. They are designed for audiences in grades 7-12. Using PowerPoint slide shows, I focus on different aspects of the writing process, including: experiencing inspiration, generating ideas, developing concepts, writing rough drafts, revising, and creating final copies with the publisher. I explain how the writing processes are linked for me and emphasize the importance of all the revising and editing I do to my work while creating it. During my revision workshop, I even share drafts with the students and demonstrate why it’s so important to keep working and reworking the writing. I also discuss what it’s like to be an author and share what authors really do all day. In addition to the workshops, I also offer a general presentation on the author’s life. The presentation is more informational and suited to a larger audience. I offer four different workshops Finding your Story: Going from Inspiration to Idea to Concept (45 minutes) Revision: Getting It Right on the Fourth Try (45 minutes) Flash Fiction Writing Workshop (45 minutes) Juggling Priorities: Time Management Techniques from a Former Management Consultant (45 minutes) I offer one general presentation: An Insider’s Peek at the Author’s Life (45 minutes)
