Inspirational interactive talks with Powerpoint presentation
Normally, at whatever level, I read from my books and answer questions about writing (with tips on creative writing and poetry); sometimes I talk about the process of creating a book, publishing, etc.
Occasionally, teachers ask me to help out with writing-projects, but usually, the children enjoy an encounter with "a real writer" and my role is to encourage reading and writing for pleasure and to improve literacy – especially among reluctant readers.
