From Story Idea to Publication: Students will learn how books are written and published in the United States through my publishing experience. Where I get my ideas, how long it takes to write a picture book and a novel, the revision process, submitting to agents and publishers and finally to a book. (45 minutes plus questions)

“The best thing about having Karin come to our program is that I know all the kids, no matter what age, will be engaged the entire time.  The creativity she draws out of them just by asking simple questions and getting them to explore their own imagination is a wonderful thing to see!”
