Wanda Wyont, Presents the Writing Process, Shares Books, and Consults
I would be happy to visit your school, preschool, conference or church facility. Typically, a school will want a 1-2 hour session on the Writing Process. I have a power point that I go over with my scribbles as I begin to write my books. For a preschool class, the teacher may want me to share my book and have a discussion on the topics. With churches, I have spent time reviewing space that is planned for a church center and going over all the topics that should be addressed before any money is spent. Lastly, I have addressed the topic of a safe sanctuary and why it is very important to adopt policies and procedures to protect our children.
If face-to-face doesn’t work out for you, I can arrange to share my books with you electronically and provide a similar experience for children.
It is a thrill for me to see the children engaged in discussions about my books.
I make every effort to get the children involved in my stories. I love to share my books and to talk about my work as a writer. I always strive to engage students in my presentations and get them excited about reading and the writing process.
I present to ages four through eight years old. Though I prefer to share my stories with intimate groups such as 1-2 classrooms, I will tailor my visit to meet your needs.

Fees and information:
My typical fee is $450.00/ for 2 morning sessions and one afternoon session. This does not include travel expenses. I will come for half days if the school is an easy drive. I live in NC and prefer to travel within driving distance from my home. (I am open to other areas.) I can visit electronically for 30 minute sessions at a charge of $100.00.. I would much prefer one classroom for each session if you are planning a Skype session.
Ages and types of presentations:
Preschool/Kindergarten: I make every effort to design my presentations to meet the needs of this population. I try to have an energetic presentation and I encourage the children’s involvement.
1st/2nd Grades: In addition to the stories, I have a Power Point on the writing process. As I go through the story, I am hoping that the children can envision themselves as writers.
Church Start-up Child Care Centers or Church Nurseries
It is very important to have a consultant look at your facility before proceeding with plans to open a child care center. A consultant will not only look at the space, but the individual will go over some important items about staffing, budgets, sanitation, and safety topics.
All nurseries should follow sound safety practices. It is important to have a knowledgeable individual to assist with the policies, procedures, and practices for the nursery workers and the parents or guardians.
Let me know what you have in mind for a successful visit and I will try to accommodate you.
