Fee Schedule / 2016–2017 School Year
My fee for a visit depends on the distance between your school and my home in Needham, Massachusetts. The fee ranges from $2,100–$2,400 per day, and there may be additional travel expenses. Please note that if your school is more than 90 minutes from my house, you must book more than one day for the visit, but you are welcome to share a multi-day visit with other schools. To determine the cost for your school, consult the fee schedule below. Mileage is calculated at the current GSA (www.gsa.gov) rate.
A visit includes up to 4 presentations per day. Each presentation lasts approximately 50 minutes (30 minutes for kindergarten and pre-K classes).
Local Visits (up to a 90-minute drive)
Visits (up to a 3-hour drive)
(Please note: There is a 2-day minimum for these visits. Any number of schools in the area can join together to fill the two days.)
mileage, overnight accommodations, and meals
Long-Distance Visits (requiring air travel)
(Please note: There is a 3-day minimum for these visits. Any number of schools in the area can join together to fill the three days.)
overnight accommodations, meals, airfare, and local transportation
In addition to the writing workshops, assemblies, and residencies listed below, I can customize presentations to meet the particular needs of your school. I offer up to four presentations per day and speak to students in grades pre-K through 12.
I charge a per-day fee (regardless of the number of presentations), and I'm happy to share a single day between two schools that are close to each other. If you would like me to keynote at your conference, please contact me directly for my keynote fee.
