WORKSHOPS                          PRESENTATIONS

&

A fun and interactive Power Point presentation, followed by short reading, discussion and Q & A session. I'm happy to work with teachers to help support what they are doing in the classroom. I also work with smaller groups on writing projects. Subjects covered: writing strategies, rewriting, different ways of approaching the same project. Perfect for grades 4-6.

 

From elementary school librarian in Seattle:

“Local author Sara Nickerson presented to my 4th & 5th graders yesterday about her new book and tips on the writing process.  Her 40-minute presentation was fabulous.  She’s an excellent speaker for 4th – 6th grade students. She highlighted many writing strategies and shared her biggest tip:  focus on the rewrite.  She also showed what her writing space (home office) looks like.  The students loved seeing her messy desk with papers scattered on the floor.”

FOR ADULTS:

 

Presented at SCBWI, University of Washington Extension Writing for Children Program, and Seattle Public Library:

 

“What Makes A Great Main Character?” An interactive class that focuses on the intersection between plot, character and setting. Power Point Presentation and discussion with Q & A.

 

I am happy to tailor presentations for specific audiences and topics. I’m also available for virtual Skype Q&A visits with your school, library, classroom, or book club. To inquire about current rates and availability, contact me here:
