School Visits

$250 for up to an hour

For assemblies and larger gatherings, I can offer a 45 minute slide presentation on the importance of representation in children’s books (with an emphasis on Asian American representation) or offer a more general presentation on my latest books, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

For individual classroom visits, I can offer a slide presentation and a Q&A, or I can offer short creative writing lessons and writing exercises. I can also mix and match!

My presentations draw upon my experience as an author of YA and MG books with Asian American protagonists, my mentorship with the We Need Diverse Books organization, and my equity-minded teaching of Children’s Literature, Creative Writing, English, and Intercultural Communication.

$1000 for a whole school day

This would include visits to individual classrooms where I can offer talks on diverse representation, Q&A with students, or short creative writing lessons. I can also mix and match! This can also include a school assembly presentation.

*The prices for all the above options are for a virtual Zoom format.

**For Schools or Organizations in North Seattle, Shoreline, or Edmonds, I can offer in-person author visits for an additional flat fee of $50 to cover travel time and cost. The cost for in-person author visits outside of the above-mentioned areas can be negotiated.

If you’re interested in inviting me for an author visit, please reach out to me through the contact form! Thank you!
