Author Carolyn Mueller is ready to interact with your students and answer student questions on what it’s like to be an author, offer activities and strategies to enhance student writing, and also respond to your students’ writing samples. Carolyn will provide tips for writing engaging children’s books, how to find inspiration and encourage students to practice their craft.  She’ll speak about the importance of mentors and support to young authors.  Students will learn about the necessity of capturing readers with the first sentence and paragraph.  Suggestions on writing dialogue that is true to how people talk will be offered. The importance of the editing process will be discussed. Advice on finding ways to get published will be offered.  If there is time at the end, students can participate in a short writing prompt and a few can share their work.  Her goal is to guide students with a desire to write to become successful in that endeavor.
