Author Visits

Purpose of Visit

“My students absolutely loved having you come to our class. Your books are so interesting…. my students and I learned so much from your visit.”

-Marykate Foley, Kindergarten teacher, George C. Round Elementary, Manassas, Virginia

Mrs. Evans will have an informal, yet instructive visit with her audience as she shares her sources of inspiration, working methods, writing tools, and many of the entertaining stories behind her published books. She will read from her books, enlighten students on the publishing process, and discuss her works in progress. During her presentation, she will inspire young listeners to believe in themselves and to develop their own talents. Questions are encouraged!

Available for
Full-day School Visits (Maximum 5 - 40 minute sessions)
Half-day Visit (2 - 40 minute presentations and a book signing)

“The Write Stuff” Writing Workshop

“I took Mrs. Evans workshop multiple times and each time it was fun and interesting. It really helped enrich my writing.

-Bethany M., 5th grader, Hillside Elementary School, Ashburn, Virginia

Students meet for weekly course instruction in which Mrs. Evans shows them the steps and stages of the publishing process-from initial idea to published book. Students will be motivated to keep their own writer’s journal. As they learn how to create different kinds of poetry, invent imaginative story lines, and revise and polish their work, they will become confident, capable writers. This 4-6 week workshop will inspire children to love writing!
