* * * Yes, I do virtual visits!¬†Contact me. Tell me what you’re looking¬†for and¬†what your budget is.* * *


Hi‚ÄĒI love to teach and I love to travel!

I‚Äôve been an instructor in the UCLA Extension Writers Program since 1999. ¬†In fact, I was honored to be named ¬†UCLA Extension’s Creative Writing Instructor of the Year! (Read more about it in UCLA’s interview here.)

I  visit schools in different countries throughout the year, but most often in the spring.

Why the spring?  Because my very smart husband is a CPA and he’s neck-deep in taxes each spring.

I’ve been to over 400 schools in the U.S., Germany, France, England, Italy, and Poland.

I’m also one of the six children’s authors who teach writing at TeachingAuthors –we teach workshops together at conferences and schools in pairs, trios or all six of us–contact me for more info!

Yes, I do own a magic carpet.

So here’s your to-do list:

  • Invite me to your school to give assemblies and then teach poetry workshops to a select group of students.
  • Enter your email in the top menu on the right for my (very occasional) updates.
  • Take a look at the links author Alexis O’Neill offered in a talk she gave at the California School Library Conference, showing many models of author visits, how to find authors, how to get grants, etc.
