I feel that it’s important that we encourage our children to use their imagination and learn to be creative. The future needs to have people that create and enjoy things like music and paintings and reading books.
Each of my books and short stories contain writing exercises. I also include definitions to words that may be unfamiliar. These can be used to write any story, but I’d love to read some student fan fiction with my characters and settings.
The following guides contain activities for the mentioned book.
Town Magician: Embracing the Magic
Town Magician: Transgression of Magic
Town Magician: Short Stories
If you have a writing class or homeschool group, I would love to talk with them. The easiest is a recorded, virtual visit. Have your class or students answer the questions in the document below. You will receive a video recording of my answers.
I live in Northeast Ohio and can more easily visit a school for an in person author talk. For those further away, at the moment, a virtual visit (via zoom, skype, or similar) is the best option.
Contact me to discuss.
Imagination and Creativity talk/workshop
This talk is perfect in libraries or after-school events where parents can be involved. I use examples and fun activities to spark children’s imaginations, but also to help their parents understand the importance of using imagination.
Imagination without fear – a small workshop for kids and their parents. We discuss imagination and engage in several activities to help spark that imagination.
