Options for School Visits
The Troubles of Writing a Book (Assembly): In this 30-45 minute presentation, Isaiah takes your students on a journey from when he was a sixth grader, dreaming of writing, to the day that his book was published. Throughout this presentation, Isaiah gives the audience three essential elements needed to see their dreams come true. There is time built in to this presentation for audience Q&A. An additional twenty minutes would be necessary for a book signing.
How to Hatch Your Story (Workshop): In this 45 - 60 minute presentation, Isaiah works with the students to take a story idea from concept to execution. In the end, every student will walk away with a workable story synopsis and a plan for how to complete their project. Throughout the process, Isaiah also encourages students on how to offer and receive constructive criticism, how to edit their own work, and how to create a workable plan for assignments.
