I thoroughly enjoy and always welcome invitations to visit schools to share my passion for writing, literacy, and art with children and teachers.
I am happy to do a half-day visit or a full-day. I mostly attend schools in the Hamilton area, but I'm happy to travel for expenses paid. Anything outside the Hamilton-Burlington corridor will have a mileage surcharge of .35 cents/km. Presentations include a reading, a group exercise and discussion. There is always time for a Q&A as well. I will do readings for up to grade 6 but do understand that I specialize in picture books and picture book writing so generally up to grade 4 works best. I will gladly customize my talk to be based on current units and themes if asked.
Fees: $350 for full day, $250 for half day.
