I’m available for Skype (free of charge to classrooms for 20 minutes!) and in-person school, library, and bookstore visits. (Presentations in English, Spanish, or both!)

Presentations to kids could include:

  • The Creative Process (Where Ideas Come From)
  • Writing + Revising
  • Fiction + Nonfiction
  • The Publishing Process
  • Making Mistakes
  • Collaboration and Compromise
  • Building Civic Action
  • And More!

My presentations are primarily geared toward ages K-4th, but I’d also love to tailor presentations for older grades. Let’s talk!

Please contact me with questions or for bookings at Julie (dot) Segal (dot) Walters (at) gmail (dot) com.

Looking forward to meeting you!

“There are many authors and speakers out there, but the challenge among them is knowing their audience and having the ability to reach them. With Julie this is not an issue! She is able to engage her young audience by including them in the conversation and her willingness to be a little goofy. The kids truly loved interacting with her over their Skype visit and have shown a renewed interest in their own authoring efforts. Thanks so much for an amazing visit Julie! We look forward to the publication of your book!”

“Julie recently hosted a Skype author visit for our school in conjunction with World Read Aloud Day! Julie captured our students’ attention right from the start of the session by using humor and real-world connections related to the tools used by writers. I loved that she allowed ample time for student questions, signaling to students that their thoughts and opinions are valuable. Though our physical locations were separated by many miles (Texas to D.C.), we instantly felt as though Julie was visiting us face-to-face in our library!”
