Information on School Visits and Events
Want me to speak at your school, library, or event? I love giving presentations, answering reader questions, and seeing people.
My presentations are great for adults and students alike. Here are a few of the topics/formats I offer:
The Publishing Process
Perfect for large audiences up to 500. I take the audience through the entire publishing process — from writing the first draft, to editing, to getting covers, to seeing the book in print for the first time. Q&A at the end.
Perfect for large audiences up to 500. I discuss various aspects of fantasy books and film, including worldbuilding, structure, and taking ideas as far as they will go. Q&A at the end.
Writing and Editing
Perfect for large audiences up to 500. I focus on the writing process itself: brainstorming ideas, getting words on the page, fighting writer’s block, and revising the story until it shines. Q&A at the end.
Not a presentation, but a workshop in which I’ll read and critique pages from a creative writing class or group (number of students and pages to be determined). This is a smaller session, with more individual attention.
One hour-long Skype visit ideal for book clubs and classrooms. We can talk about my books, writing, or publishing. Q&A at the end.
Please email me at jodi.meadows (at) gmail.com for rates and availability. I’m also happy to discuss larger audiences and other topics. I want all events to be exciting and memorable!
“Jodi Meadows is not only a fantastic writer, she’s a fantastic speaker as well. I was incredibly impressed with her ability to engage and connect with an auditorium full of teenagers. Her visit to our school surpassed all our expectations.” – Bradley Walton, Harrisonburg High School, Harrisonburg, VA
