Crafting Successful Author School Visits

Judi Folmsbee, facilitator for the November 2018 meeting

Judi recently attended a three-day workshop sponsored by Highlights, and she'll share with us some of the things she learned about creating and delivering an impressive school visit.

 

School visits are a powerful way to get your book into the hands of readers. But how do you take what you've written or illustrated and turn it into an attention-grabbing presentation for kids? The workshop gave Judi strategies for creating and delivering engaging talks, information on developing materials for teachers and

students, and guidelines for developing other promotional tools. Lots of time was spent on how to speak on your subject and engage the audience in front of you.

 

If time permits, we will critique manuscripts. Please bring 20 copies of a maximum of three (3) double-spaced pages with one-inch margins and 12-pt. font. Also, please use the Line Numbering feature in Microsoft Word for your manuscript (go to Layout and click Line Numbering). 

 

Refreshments: Elizabeth Boerner and Celine Stuart

We're a friendly group, don't be shy. If you're interested in becoming a member of DCWF, there are no application forms to fill out or dues to pay. Just show up at one of our meetings where we'll capture your name and contact information. We have a lot of resources and encouragement to offer, and new members always bring a lot to the group.

 

Established in 1993, DCWF meets the third Saturday of the month at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, Tunnell Hall, 203 North Bedford Street, Georgetown, DE 19947, from 9 AM to Noon. Meeting attendance runs from eight to 28. Many are beginning writers who are mentored by those who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with resources to build up the Christian who writes. We follow a meeting agenda, but there is no membership fee or pressure; however, we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing. Meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, manuscript critiques, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats and encourage participation in regional/national conferences. Follow us on Facebook.
