My School Visit Philosophy
When I’m at your school, my time is yours.
I enjoy speaking to small and large groups, alike. For small groups, I do a more hands-on presentation, showing children things and passing them around. For larger groups, I use PowerPoint, but I keep each presentation flexible and rarely tell the same stories to every group. I change what I talk about according to the age group, the interest level (if they get distracted, I punt), and the degree of involvement on the part of the students.
I’m happy to present to three groups per day, then eat lunch with a group of children or in a class, and meet with a smaller group of creative writers, who are often in the 4th and 5th grades.
I am now booking for the 2015-2016 school year and look forward to visiting schools around New England.

“Stephanie Greene did one of the best jobs I’ve seen an author do of communicating to the kids her process of writing a book, from getting ideas to revision. She really compared what she does to the writing process that the kids do!”
“I thought Stephanie was great! She has a great sense of humor and great stories that connected her with the students.”
“I liked the idea of how Stephanie looks for writing ideas like with the example of the praying mantis she found and she thought that if he could talk, he would ask, ‘Has anyone told you it’s impolite to stare?’”
“I thought she gave a fabulous presentation! She had interesting stories and a great sense of humor. She definitely kept the students’ interest. One thing that stood out to me, and I referred to it later than day when we were in writing class, was her example of revising and editing. It was wonderful that she brought her own examples to show and talk about the process she has to go through. It makes it more real for the students.”
