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.”
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:
