Visits can take place in small, intimate classroom settings or in large auditoriums, with students of all ages. Spotlight Author Visits are usually about 45 minutes long and can include some combination of a brief reading, a talk on the writer’s life in reading and writing, a mini-workshop, and a Q&A. These visits often have a powerful impact on the students and provide a valuable window into the life of a professional creative writer.
