School Visits

I love visiting schools and groups to talk to readers, writers, and teachers! I am an experienced educator, and I offer engaging writing workshops and assembly presentations about a variety of writing and publishing related topics for a variety of age groups, from fifth graders all the way up to adults! I also do Skype visits: I offer casual sessions that include a brief reading and Q&A, and I also offer two presentations through Skype in the Classroom: one about the importance of persistence, resilience, and flexibility and one about the power of collaboration.  Please request a session through Skype in the Classroom (and write a message there if you need a different time than the ones I have listed; I do have some flexibility) or email me at lauriemorrisonwrites [at] gmail [dot] com if you’d like me to visit or Skype with your school or group!
