What type of presentations do you give?

I have a few presentations on the writing process where I emphasize the importance of effort, feedback, struggle and improvement. Another one is about my journey as a writer-- mainly a motivational story about a student (me) who used to be a below average reader and writer. 

I've also presented to educators on the topic of publishing student writing and the motivation and professionalism it fosters in students engaged in an authentic project.

I can do writing workshops with smaller groups (20 or less) which focus on creating a positive culture of critique and helpful feedback. And I'm happy to work with teachers and catering my talks to fit their current lessons or projects.
