I love workshopping with students. Every time I leave a classroom after a presentation, I find myself overwhelmed by the creativity of the students I’ve met. I prefer in-class workshops where we can delve into the nuts and bolts of writing. Below you’ll find a brief description of some of the standard class workshops I offer. However, I work with teachers to find out what students are reading and writing and how I can tweak my presentations to make my workshop time relevant to each individual classroom.
