Paula Morrow: Author, Editor, Librarian

Do you need a keynote, breakout, or workshop?

I have shared my expertise through conference keynotes and presentations; breakout sessions; and stand-alone workshops across the country. These have included the Highlights Foundation Writers Workshops (at both Chautauqua, NY, and Boyds Mills, PA); NAEYC Annual Conference; numerous SCBWI gatherings from Seattle to Orlando; and other conferences from Londonderry to Los Angeles.

Workshops and Breakout Sessions

I am happy to give stand-alone workshops, keynote presentations, or conference breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics.

A few past workshops:

I also do a session I call “From the Slush Pile.” Conference attendees may bring the first page of any manuscript and toss it into a box. During the session I pull pages out of the box, read them aloud, and give a cold response as to whether I would, as an acquiring editor, continue reading—and why or why not.


Writing for the educational market

Since 2013, Jan Fields and I have co-presented the workshop Writing for the Educational Market at Highlights Foundation. Our alums have had a gratifyingly high level of success. A few examples:
