An interactive Power Point presentation with time for discussion and Q & A. 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. In-person, Skype or Zoom.
(From an elementary school librarian):
“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.”
I work with writers of all ages and in many different settings. Past workshops have been offered through SCBWI, University of Washington Extension Writing for Children Program, and Seattle Public Library.
I am happy to tailor presentations for specific audiences and topics. I’m also available for virtual Skype or Zoom visits with your school, library, classroom, or book club. To inquire about current rates and availability, contact me here:
