Let’s Talk About Writing!
Did you know that Sarah Sawler is available for school visits, festivals, and workshops? It’s true, and she offers a range of options for everyone—plus the option to customize a workshop to meet your specific needs.
Sarah Sawler is the award-winning author of three books: 100 Things You Don’t Know About Nova Scotia; 100 Things You Don’t Know About Atlantic Canada – For Kids; and the Moonbeam Spirit Award-winning Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything (with Frankie MacDonald). When she’s not writing books, she’s working as a publicist for graphic novel publisher Conundrum Press, reviewing children’s literature, or writing web content for tech companies.
She’s learned a lot while wearing all these hats, and she loves to share her knowledge and experience through interactive presentations and workshops.
Choose from the following options, or reach out to inquire about customized workshops, festivals, signings, or other event appearances.
Elementary (Grades 3-6)
Presentations will include a discussion on research methods, fun readings and interactive trivia (with a prize!) and a hands-on activity.
With two books on the Hackmatack reading list, 2019/2020 will be a particularly fun year.
Junior High/Middle School
Presentations will include a discussion on research methods, including the importance of critical thinking, readings, interactive trivia, and a hands-on activity.

Presentations will also include a hands-on activity and readings.
