Crafting Successful Author & Illustrator Visits 2019

April 28 - May 2, 2019


Create and deliver an impressive school visit with our faculty by your side.

School visits are a powerful way to get your book into the hands of readers. But how do you take what you’ve written or illustrated and turn it into an attention-grabbing presentation for kids? This workshop will give you strategies for creating and delivering engaging talks, information on developing materials for teachers and students, and guidelines for developing other promotional tools.

This workshop offers a unique learning experience:

  1. Faculty will help you develop or refine your presentation.
  2. You will visit a school and deliver your presentation, which will be videotaped.
  3. Afterward, faculty will review your presentation with you and give you specific feedback.

It’s not to be missed for any author or illustrator who would like to develop or refine their school presentations. School visits sell books. Join us for this hands-on workshop designed to make your school visits a success!
