Skype Visit with Author Heidi Schulz
Types of Sessions—For Schools, Libraries, and Book Clubs

**FREE 15-minute Skype Q&A**

These visits are intended for groups who have read one or more of Heidi's books and, with instructor guidance, have prepared questions ahead of time. Visits are scheduled every 20 minutes during the selected time period—or for book clubs, on the occasional evening. Sessions are offered on a first come, first served basis until Heidi's schedule is full.

Cost: FREE (one per class, per year – additional sessions may be scheduled as paid visits)

**Skype Author Visits – Full Presentation Plus Q&A**

These longer Skype sessions are similar to my in-person author visits and writing workshops. They’re 40-45 minute sessions that begin with a 25-minute presentation on the writing process, using a book of your choice as a focus title and discussing the behind the scenes work that goes into making a book—including using real life experiences to create stories, brainstorming, research, and drafting and revision. We wrap up with 15-20 minutes of Q&A with students. These sessions are available via Skype or other video conferencing services.
Or, if you prefer, any of the workshops listed at may be adapted as virtual visits. These are full-length presentations that include visuals.

Availability: flexible – see below to request date/time.
Time: 45-60 minutes
Cost: $250

Do you plan to distribute book order forms to give your students the opportunity to order personalized, signed books through Heidi's local store The Book Bin after your Skype visit? (This isn’t required, but it’s very much appreciated and also helps add to student excitement. If you do not know if your school allows this or if your teachers are willing to participate, please find out before submitting this form.) *
Bonus Question (not required): Would you like to subscribe to Heidi's newsletter, to be kept up to date about book news and author appearances?
