Speaking

microphoneI’m available to speak to groups on a variety of writing topics. Being asked to speak to a group – no matter how large or small – is a privilege and responsibility that I take very seriously. I’ve studied under several gifted speakers during continuing education tracks at writers’ conferences and am a graduate of the Proverbs 31 She Speaks Training Conference.

I’m happy to develop a message that ties in with the theme of a special event or can adjust one of these topics to meet your group’s needs. If you’re looking for something in particular, just ask! I’ll work closely with you to learn about your group’s needs and your expectations.

Messages for Children or School Groups

And … I especially love to teach children! With middle and high school children of my own and years of experience helping with their activities, I have a sense for what works – and doesn’t – for various age groups and apply that to my presentations. Most children are creative by nature and enjoy learning how to write more creatively or hearing about how things are written. I can adjust most of my speaking topics for children, but here are three I focus on for elementary groups:

  • How to Write an Article
  • How a Magazine Is Made
  • Starting Your Story … and Making It Better
  • Super Sleuth Research and Interviews
  • Building Blocks of Every Good Novel
