I love meeting readers at schools, stores, conventions, and book clubs. Below are some of my popular presentations, although I’m happy to speak on any writerly topic that supplements your curricular unit or festival theme. Further down are a few organizers’ testimonials and my honoraria info. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
For middle school and up, especially those interested in writing.
What is world building and how can it pull readers into your story? Silvia Acevedo, author of God Awful Loser and its sequel, God Awful Thief, presents the paramount principals of world building and how you can use each point to expand or shrink the struggles of your protagonist and the expanse of your tale. Bring a notebook for some writing drills or a few selections of your work in progress that showcase an aspect of your world.
