When I’m not busy with a writing residency, I get to visit other schools. Whether to do an author visit or a writing workshop, I love opening a child’s imagination. Quite often students fail to make the connection between what the teacher is teaching in the classroom and their own creativity. This is where I come in.  With a stockpile of lessons accumulated over my years with Writers in the Schools, I help them take the tools they’ve received to bring about that AHA! moment, that marvelous stage when they realize they have an inner-writer they didn’t know existed.

If your school (4th through 12th grade) is interested in a visit or workshop, please contact me at lesaboutin@gmail.com for prices.
