2019 Writers to the Schools Booking Form

THIN AIR school visits for students in grades K-3 and 10-12

Writers to the Schools is designed to bring writers to young students (grades K-3) and to high schools (grades 10-12) between Monday, September 23 and Friday, September 27, 2019. Writers will read their work and talk with students about writing; with senior students, they may also share writing exercises. Hour-long bookings are standard, but half-hour time slots are possible for kindergarten and grade one students. Please plan the visit for a classroom or library. We will make every effort to arrange for you to be in contact with your writer(s) prior to their visit.

Writer-visit slot: one hour (or two consecutive half-hours for kindergarten and grade 1s only)
Maximum group size: 50 students
Price: $250 per hour

Note: to accommodate as many schools as possible, we will restrict each school to two hours of writer visits. If you would like to request more than one writer to visit your school please submit a separate form for each writer.

To register:
1. Fill in all the information, and don't forget to click on SUBMIT to complete your booking.
2. Fill in a separate booking form for each reading your school will host.
3. We will work with all registered schools to finalize scheduling toward the end of June.

NOTE: Cancellations after September 15 will be invoiced.
