School Visits

Would you like for me to visit your school?


Full information about my school programs is available here.


Presentations are tailored to meet your school’s needs. Typical assembly and classroom presentations are one hour, with four assemblies or presentations per school day.  I travel with a musician for most school visits, and our programs include a fun mix of a) discussion of techniques for writing good poems, b) recitation of poems, and c) incredibly fun, raucous concerts featuring my songs, concerts at which students and teachers sing along, and get up and dance.


We are very flexible in terms of the design of our programs, because we want to provide the sort of experience that best suits the interests of your school and its students.


Cost: Contact me at for a quote. Special pricing is available for schools in central Illinois (e.g., Bloomington, Danville, Decatur, Effingham, Normal, Springfield, etc.), along with schools in the Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Louis metropolitan areas.


Books and CDs: During school visits, students can purchase the various Meadowbrook anthologies that have included my poems, and also two music CDs (I wrote all of the lyrics for the songs) and a third CD that features me reciting over 30 of my poems.
