School Visits

If you would like me to come to your school for a visit, please contact me for rates. I prefer to do workshops with small groups. I am available local to Calgary, Alberta. Or you can let me know where you are and I will contact you if I am in your area!


PD Workman’s books have been a huge hit with students at Burnaby Youth Custody Services. As a member of the In the Margins book award for marginalized youth I have had the opportunity to evaluate countless books for young adults and Workman’s books are some of the most popular. A number of her books have been nominated and the book Ruby Between the Cracks actually made it to the top ten.
When I heard that PD was coming to our area, I contacted her and she readily agreed to come and speak to our girls. PD had a very natural way of speaking to the girls and was able to engage them in discussions about writing and books. Her ten minute “free write” was extremely successful and the girls became totally involved in the activities she provided. After the session the girls spoke about how they enjoyed PD’s visit and one of the girls who had professed not to enjoy reading came back the following week having read her book Cynthia Has a Secret and took out two more of Workman’s books. This alone speaks volumes about PD’s writing and her visit.
