"This was by far the best author Skype
that I have hosted. It was amazing!"
I'd love to meet your class!
Since I live in northern Ontario, virtual visits have become one of my favourite ways to meet students. I have skyped with hundreds of classrooms around the world right from my living room. Some of them have blogged about the experience, see reviews below.
I offer two different programs:
15-minute Q&A type session. Fee: FREE
30-40-minute full presentation. Fee: FREE with the purchase of at least 10 copies of my book
This presentation includes a discussion on how I started writing for magazines, the importance of editing your writing, and I share actual edits from my manuscript. I also talk about dogsledding, share funny dog stories, use real dogsledding equipment as props, and describe how a team is formed and trained. Time for questions at the end.
Skype dates are listed below. Please note: when you send your request, you must include the following information in your email:
Your name and school name, your Skype name, grade or grades and approximate number of students, the date and time requested IN EASTERN STANDARD TIME, and specify if you are interested in the 15-minute or full presentation.
I do a 50-minute presentation where I talk about dogsledding and writing. It's interactive and a lot of fun. Contact me for full details and fees.
"Terry was fantastic. She shared invaluable experiences with the kids about being a musher and author."
"The kids are still talking about it!"
"What a wonderful experience for the kids! They were completely engaged as were the teachers. Terry left time for questions and it was clear from the questions that the students had learned a lot."
—Mrs. Wainwright, Boxford MA
"Mrs. Johnson hooked my class immediately. She shared funny stories, showed equipment, read from her book, and talked about writing. By far the BEST Skype lesson my class has done."
"This was one of the best author skypes that I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of."
