Topics:

Programs can be customized to include the goals and benchmarks that are important within each student body. As we all know, this varies from one school to another. Kathy-jo Wargin is able to customize her programs so they include critical touchpoints that help educators bring the main ideas from the program back into their classroom practice.

General Program:

The Life of an Author / includes background, ideas on how to foster creativity, as well as the process of writing a book from the sloppy copy to the finished product.


I believe that school programs should be personal and fun! How a young student feels at the end of an author visit can impact how they feel about writing throughout life. I want students to discover the joy and energy that exists in the creative process, and to be excited about sharing their own stories. I want them to know their stories matter, and that the world is waiting to hear them.
