“Loved the way [they] incorporated movie clips and book passages into the talk — it really put things into context for the kids. Loved it!”
— Carrie Munroe, Standiford Elementary


“The presentation was excellent, motivated students, and helped re-inforce the importance of writing and the creative process.
— Mitch Wood, Principal at Savage Middle School


In-Class Workshops – The 5 Pillars of Story 


After participating in the 45 min The Art of Story, Adam can also provide an in-class workshop (for grades 3 and up) where they discuss The 5 Pillars of Story, an excercise that reinforces Common Standard writing skills and provides a foundation for students to write their own creative stories.
