Sarah has presented her books in readings all across Canada! If you are looking for an author to come to your school here are several of her workshops (these are suggested workshops, though you’re welcome to customize).
Grades JK- 1: 45 minute book reading and presentation on what an author does. The session wraps up with an interactive book-based craft.
Grades 2-4: 1 hour long book reading and Q&A. I can provide the teacher with prep material ahead of time to help the children prepare questions. The session wraps up with a craft or take-home activity.
Grades 5-8: 1 hour long book reading, Q&A and interactive game (reverse fortune telling). The game is based on my non-fiction book Warriors and Wailers: One Hundred Ancient Chinese Jobs You Might Have Relished or Reviled.
Grades 9 -12: I can provide either a reading and Q&A or an intensive writing workshop. The writing workshops have covered writing picture books, writing short stories, and writing poetry (time usually only allows one genre). These workshops can run from 1 hour to a full week.
Adult Presentations/Workshops: I’m happy to come to book clubs or writing groups to do one-on-one sessions.
You can book Sarah for free through Poetry In Voice, The League of Canadian Poets poets in the school program, or request funding from The Writers Union Ontario writers in the school program.
