inspire and entertain!

Perfect for classrooms, small-group school assemblies, library programs, parents’ nights, PTO/PTA events, writers’ conferences, and more!

“…an innate ability to capture students’ engagement…very inspiring.” –Mr. P., K-5 Principal

Half-day Guest Author Visit: Four 40-minute sessions ($320)

Choose either (or talk to Curt about a combination of both):


Four 40-minute sessions: Presentations include things such as an interactive guitar song, Curt’s writing journey, tips for student writing, a reading from one of Curt’s books, discussion of literary techniques, time for questions.


Four 40-minute sessions: Hands-on writing experience for students—includes discussion of being a writer, at least one writing activity with literary discussion, student practice, and real-time author feedback on student work.

Full-day Guest Author Visit: Eight 40-minute sessions ($580)

Get BOTH the AUTHOR PRESENTATION and WRITERS’ WORKSHOP (four 40-minute sessions of each, or a combination that equals eight sessions).

Or DOUBLE up on one or the other (a total of eight 40-minute sessions of either).

Copies of Curt’s books (Curt’s choice) will be sent upon visit confirmation to explore with your students/organization in advance (3 books for each half-day ordered)!

If accommodations are needed to address specific student needs, or if you have other timing needs or requests, again, please contact Curt in advance.
