Author School Visits Engaging, educational, and fun!
Do you want your students to be excited about reading and writing? Do you want them to be inspired to dream big, work hard, and follow their passions? As a children's author, I'm passionate about inspiring kids to be their best, have confidence and courage to follow their dreams, and acquire the mindset for success. I strive to offer that through my books and presentations. Words have the power to transform and reading is an essential tool in getting kids on the path to success. My fun, educational, and memorable presentations will have students excited about books, reading and writing, and ignite their imagination! A special "Star" ceremony will encourage students to believe in themselves as they pursue their goals in life.

"My class had such a blast meeting real life author Rosie Pova and pampering her with questions about the writing process! I could see lights go on in their heads, getting excited about planning what kinds of stories they could write!" --Ms. Woolley, Vial Elementary

********************************************** The Making Of A Story & The Writer's Life Interactive Story Time and book reading plus, pick one of the mini-workshops/presentation choices below
1). From idea to first draft: how is a story born? Practical advice, fun exercises and interactive games for the budding writer.
2). Titles: the writer's first chance to hook the reader. How to come up with a great title? What does a title do and what it isn't supposed to do? Title first or story first?
3). My journey as a writer. It all starts with a dream . . . or with someone's random suggestion. In any case, passion is a must. How I found my place with words as an immigrant and non-native English speaker: from hope to rejections to hard work, heartbreak, determination and publication. Lessons learned in overcoming failure.
4). Custom presentation/workshop, tailored to your needs. Please contact me with your preferences.
