For the book Awakening, I use a PowerPoint powerpoint that takes the readers into first century Jerusalem, emphasizing the way of life at the time, showing the locations visited by the book's characters, and relating Scripture to the storyline of the book. Teacher's Guide and Book Club Discussion Guide available at no charge on my web site.
The Poet Within (a poetry writing workshop based on the style of my Do You See What I See? books utilizing a PowerPoint presentation to help students -- upper elementary and middle school -- write poetry based on photographic images)
Crafting Colorado Historical Fiction (a session geared specifically to Colorado 4th-graders)
Fashioning Fantastic Fiction
Nonfiction Writing: Research is Fun!
Picture Book Read-along (by using screen sharing, I can display the illustrations to my picture books while I read; with older audiences, I discuss the process of writing books in my associated presentation From First Draft to Published Book)
Audiences: elementary school through YA (although adult audiences also read and discuss Awakening)
Available Times: very flexible

In-Depth Visit Cost: It depends on the subject. My in-depth visits with respect to the book Awakening are done at no charge. For other visits, please email me.
Prerequisites: At minimum, you'll need a laptop with a web cam and microphone. For larger groups, I recommend attaching the computer to a projector and displaying the visit on a screen. The use of more powerful speakers or other audio upgrades will help on that end.
