So You Want to Be a Writer!
Many students dream of growing up to be a writer.
Award-winning author Heather E. Schwartz is here to help!
“So You Want to Be a Writer” is a fun
and informative hi-lo workshop presentation, perfect for:
Students with a niche interest (writing!)
Students with a short attention span.
Students of all ages.
I’d love to visit your school or library in person (when that’s safe!)
to deliver full-length presentations.
What you get
A set of 4 pre-recorded videos
(about 15 minutes each), covering topics including:
My background writing more than 100 children’s books, including titles for Disney, Sesame Street, Time for Kids, and the Smithsonian. (Not to brag but to show what’s possible!)
Different ways to be a book author. No one ever talks about work-for-hire. I will!
Different ways to practice writing.
The ideal writer’s environment—perfect setting not required.
Locked Up for Freedom, my award-winning nonfiction book about a group of 11-16-year old Civil Rights Movement activists.
Snowcap Mountain Adventures, my new picture book series.
Here's a preview - and yes, I'm making a weird face here, but it gets better!
Children’s author Heather E. Schwartz presents the fun and informative workshop "So You Want to Be a Writer" in four pre-recorded videos, covering the writing life, the creative process, research techniques, different ways to publish, and more. (She sings, acts, improvises, and generally gets goofy, too - it's not some boring lecture!) Educational for all ages, short and sweet for the tech-fatigued.
