School Visits

 To arrange a school or library visit for 2018-2019, please contact Kaitlyn or her publicist at Inkyard Press, Laura Gianino.

Kaitlyn loves talking to students of all ages and is thrilled to waive her $1,500-per-day fee for schools that purchase 250 copies of The Diminished. Kaitlyn also asks that schools cover reasonable transportation costs and, if out of the Memphis or Knoxville, TN areas, lodging costs.

Kaitlyn is also happy to Skype with students.  So please contact her if you’d like to ask about Skyping.  Skype sessions up to an hour are free and always work best when students have read at least one of the books and are ready with questions.

What does an author visit look like?

Well, a lot of that is up to you.  Kaitlyn loves talking to large groups or to smaller classes of students.  Depending on the format, the visit can be customized to what will best benefit the students.

For larger groups, Kaitlyn discusses her writing career and the business of publishing. She discusses how what you think you are going to do with your life isn’t always what ends up happening and that those classes you thought were useless in school often become some of the most important things you use in your future. 

Writer workshops are also available on:

  • Rejection Bootcamp – Learning how NO isn’t always about you.  Kaitlyn gives you the lowdown on how to cope with rejection in all areas of your life and tells you why that dreaded word NO shouldn’t get you down.  Everyone gets rejected.  How you deal with it determines whether you’ll keep trying to pursue your dreams.  (And you should!)

  • World Building 101 – Learn the rules of playing God with your own story and see how every author can start with the same characters and turn them into something unique.

  • Editing, Revision and Rewriting – Oh My! – Why revisions are important to writers in all stages of their career and how to look at revising your work as something exciting instead of as a drag.
