Currently, I offer in-person author visits to schools and organizations in the Guelph, Ontario area.
My current workshops include presentations suitable for children in Grades 2 to 6 on topics including:
The Basic Parts of Story
Editing Your Work/Finding the Best Words
Writing With Your Senses
My newest workshop combines two important parts of student life in one: Bullying and Writing a Better Story
I also have more advanced workshops for Grades 7-12 on everything from:
Showing not telling
Editing your work (Mining your gold)
If you are outside of the immediate Guelph, Ontario area, I am also available for Skype presentations with your students/group for a variety of workshops.
My latest book is called The Bee Mama's Guide to Attracting and Caring for Mason Bees.
I have created a special workshop series perfect for children in grades two to six to take your class through a full year of how to prepare and care for these gentle super-pollinators. All participants will make their own recycled craft mason bee house, which they can take home or place on school grounds.
