Author Visits

Whether you are planning an event for your grade school, home school, or public library, Alisha has an enriching presentation for your audience.

Although she has engaged in many public speaking events over the years, Alisha was just getting her author visit tour underway when the world pandemic closed schools down.

With a bit of quick thinking, and some helpful input from several elementary school staff members, she was able to adapt her interactive classroom presentation to a virtual visit that still made her message accessible to the students.

While the hope is to return to in-person visits someday, for now you can schedule your author visit for a virtual meeting with Mrs. Wells. Her love of literacy and desire to empower readers and writers of all ages still comes across loud and clear.

In an effort to help offset the strain the community feels during this moment in history, Mrs. Wells has reduced the presentation fees for all presentations.**

School or Library Video Package (equivalent to a multi-day author visit) $1,000 $500

This package includes two personalized video recordings specific for your audience*, three prerecorded videos with content encouraging literacy and supporting strong writing techniques and reading comprehension skills, a digital download of classroom activities, and a complimentary signed copy of Alisha’s book for your library.

Response Video package (equivalent to one classroom visit or assembly) $600 $300

This purchase includes one personalized video recording in response to questions your students send to the author*, a digital download of classroom activities, and a complimentary signed copy of Alisha’s book for your library.

Home School Video package $100 $50

This offering is a little more flexible, and can be customized with proper communication.

In this package, you will receive a personalized video recording in response to questions your students send to the author*, a digital download of classroom activities, and a discount towards a purchase of one of Alisha’s publications.

(The fee applies regardless to the size of the group. If a homeschool family joins another for the video experience, the fee is the same. However, only one download and discount coupon will be given)

Conference Call $200 $100

Internet connections can often be unpredictable, and glitchy presentations can be disheartening on both sides of the conversation. Given that detail, Alisha prefers to do pre-recorded sessions for you to view at a time most convenient to you.

However, sometimes you truly just need a conversation with a real person. A conference call is available upon request, and on a limited basis. The length will vary from 15-50 minutes based on audience participation. Please coordinate with Mrs. Wells directly for the details of this call.

*Alisha prefers to make the interaction as personal as possible while still observing child protection policies. She will often use the first name attached to the question, or refer to the student as a member of a teacher’s class. Prior to recording the video, she will coordinate with your event liaison to see what the best practices are for your needs.
