School Visits

kimandheraAs a public librarian for nearly ten years, Kim has visited with school groups of all ages, sharing stories, songs and a love of reading. Now, she is excited to visit your school to talk about writing books for middle grade readers and to inspire your students to create their own stories. She does both online and in-person visits. Which type is right for you?

In-Person School Visits

Kim would love to visit your students in grades 3-8 to discuss the magic of story. Students will get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to write and sell a book, and they’ll be inspired to write their own stories.

Free Skype Visits!!!

In a free, 30-minute Skype visit, Kim will answer students’ burning questions about the writing process, such as:

  • How do you publish a book?
  • Where do you get your ideas?
  • How can I get started writing?
  • Is writing really magic?
  • As well as creepily personal questions like how old are you and how much money do you make 🙂

Visits can also be done using Google Hangouts or your preferred platform 🙂

I’m also booking free Skype author panels with a group of ‘spooky’ middle grade authors. To find out more, visit:
