Events and Workshops

I am available for school assemblies, class presentations, class writing activities, panels, book signings, and speaking engagements in and around Vancouver, Washington. I also offer workshops for children or adults as well as individual creative writing help. For more information, email me at bylaurelgale.com. 

Not in the Pacific Northwest? No problem! Contact me about setting up a class visit via Skype. I may also be available to travel for your event.

Class Presentation: This presentation is designed for one class of about thirty students. It includes a reading from my book, an interactive look at what it’s really like to be a writer, and a discussion. 

Class Writing Prompts and Activities: These writing prompts work well for elementary students. They create fun characters and answer questions about them to create the beginning of a story.

School Assembly: This presentation is designed for a large audience. It includes a reading from my book, an interactive look at what it’s really like to be a writer, and a Q&A session. It's like the class presentation, but tweaked for a bigger audience. 

Workshops: These workshops can be adjusted for a variety of ages and skill levels.
  • Getting to Know Your Characters 
  • Generating Story Ideas
  • Creating Plots and Subplots
  • Developing Your Fantasy World

Events can be customized to meet the needs of your school or organization. To schedule an event, ask questions, or discuss fees, contact me at bylaurelgale@ gmail.com.
