Description

In this course you'll learn how to create, prepare, present, and book school visits as a children's book author with confidence.

We'll cover these steps to create a children's book marketing foundation for a successful school visit event:

Section 1: INTRO & PRESENTATION GOALS
Section 2: RESEARCH TEACHING STANDARDS
Section 3: DEVELOPING PRESENTATION CONTENT
Section 4: ORGANIZING PRESENTATION CONTENT
Section 5: EFFECTIVE WAYS OF ENGAGING WITH STUDENTS
Section 6: TIMING OF YOUR PRESENTATION
Section 7: PREPARING FOR VISITS
Section 8: BOOKING & PROMOTING SCHOOL VISITS
Section 9: FEES, INSURANCE, & CONTRACTS

Engaging with your young readers through a school visit is one of the most rewarding events you can do as a children’s book author.

Your children's book is written, published, or soon-to-be released and one of the best ways to get it in the hands of your young readers (and keep your book in print!) is doing school visits. You've invested a lot of time, energy, and emotion into your book -- presenting at schools as a visiting author can ensure your book captures the spotlight.

By the end of this course you will be confident in knowing how to create, present, and book author school visits.


Who this course is for:
  • Ideally, students should write for children pre-school through teens and be seeking publication or have a finished book that is published or soon-to-be published.
