School Visit Opportunity

Christine Brower-Cohen is arranging author visits for her school district to help celebrate the National Day on Writing .  The school district serves students in grades k-12.  If you would like to visit West Babylon, Long Island on October 20, 2010 to be a part of their celebration, let me know.  

Authors who visit can get paid for their time if they are already approved by BOCES.  If you aren’t currently approved by BOCES, Christine will help you start the process for future visits.  Authors interested in BOCES approval should send Christine their email address.  Her school district will forward you a W9 form.  Authors should complete the form and fax or email it back to BOCES.  BOCES will contact them with the next steps.
If an author is not already approved by BOCES, but would like to participate at Christine’s school this year anyway, they may have to volunteer their time.  However, Christine will speak to the principal/P.T.A  about selling your books to the students in time for the visit.
Authors interested in volunteering their time, or joining BOCES should email

Go for it.

Talk tomorrow,
