School Visits: After twenty-five years of doing them, I have retired from making school visits. However, I still answer all snail and e-mail from my readers (see below). I do, occasionally, do SKYPE visits (there is a fee involved and can be arranged through the contact form below). I want to emphasize that actual school visits by those authors and illustrators doing them are much more successful as teaching tools than Skyping. Nothing beats hands-on. If you choose to find a real live author or illustrator, SCBWI has listings of authors and illustrators who visit schools in your area:
