Mentoring Young Writers

Danielle loves to work with young writers, especially preschoolers, teens, and everything in between. Before she was a teen librarian or an author, she spent years working as a writing tutor and mentoring youth. Whether it is 1/1, small group, or a classroom workshop, the result is always the same: youth have produced a piece of work they are proud of or a draft of something new. She’s worked with preschoolers to create stories for their classroom, and has helped tweens and teens compose essays, short stories, and more. Rates will vary depending on the length of time, number of youth, and what the desired outcome will be. The basic rates can be found below.
