Presentation Description

To be frank: I have never worked with students before, but would love the chance to. My debut novel is about mental illness, art, love, and family, and my own love of writing started when I was in school, trying to find a way to work through the many unmanageable feelings I didn't know how to identify. If you were to invite me to work with your class, I would ask you about your needs, wants, and expectations, and provide you with a presentation catered specifically to you!

Workshop Description:
