Speaking Engagements, Workshops, Seminars, Virtual Chats, and More…
I enjoy talking about writing and the science fiction/fantasy genre. Some of the presentations and talks I’ve done include:
- Keynote Speaker at Surrey International Writers’ Conference, talking about the power of story.
- Speaker at the American Library Association Conference, talking about Sexism and the Kick-Butt Heroine.
- Presenter at A Rally of Writers, talking about building and selling a fantasy series.
- Keynote Speaker at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference.
- Panelist at Book Expo of America, talking about books and blogging.
- Numerous presentations to classrooms, libraries, and conventions.
Fees are negotiable depending on preparation time, travel, and the nature of the event. (Particularly for non-profit and educational organizations.) Please let me know your usual honorarium amount when you contact me.
I also try to follow author Jacqueline Houtman’s policy: “If you’ve taught my kids, you get a free author visit.”
