Workshops, Readings, Keynotes, Field Trips/Mentorship/Coaching
EVERYONE IS TALENTED, ORIGINAL, AND HAS SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SAY.
— BRENDA UELAND, IF YOU WANT TO WRITE
Ueland's words guide my writing workshops. Her book, still in print, is my 'bible' on the connection between writing and spirit. The pages are filled with the exuberance of a passionate and compassionate teacher.
KEYNOTES, SPEECHES, LECTURES
The majority of the speeches and keynotes are in the field of education, literacy, literature, mental and physical health and well-being, issues affecting women and children. A weaving of story and poetry in each presentation. Information and delight. Serious, interactive and fun. Fees vary. Contact me.
AUTHOR READINGS/COMMUNITY VISITS
I still do some author readings in schools (all grades), universities, libraries, festivals, women's book clubs, mother and daughter book clubs, and more. As I've created books for all ages, a community-minded invitation appeals to me most. Skype class visits? YES!
Hosts are responsible for travel, meals, and accommodations. No billets. My reading fee varies. The minimum is Canada Council Reading rate of $250.00 for an hourlong reading.
