School Visits

Question:  Do you do school visits?


I enjoy doing interactive classroom visits, large-scale lectures and presentations, one-off writing workshops, or longer, more in-depth residencies. If you’re interested in bringing me in to meet your students, shoot me an email at, and we can discuss further. In addition to being a writer, I am also a trained teacher, and am always interested in ways to integrate my expertise as an author with the needs of your particular classroom.

Additionally, I am a teaching artist with COMPAS, an arts education organization in Minnesota. My residency description can be found here. My residencies last for one week; they are intense, they are productive, but most of all, they are fun. I’m a big believer in writing a lot, and the kids oblige. I operate across genres, across theme and in multiple forms, and we have a blast doing it.
