Spotlight Author Visits bring SAL speakers to local K-12 public schools for free, one-time visits. During visits, authors read their work, talk about their path to the writing life, and do a Q&A with students.
Your school does not need to be a WITS partner school in order to participate. Visits can take place in small, intimate classroom settings or in large auditoriums, with students of all ages. These visits often have a powerful impact on the students and provide a valuable window into the life of a professional creative writer.
