Deem, James Becoming a Young Writer Performing Arts- Literary Artists
I briefly introduce some of the books I've written and discuss how I get my ideas. I tell children the story of how I became a writer in the fifth grade. Using PowerPoint, I talk about the research I do in writing a book. Sometimes I use images related to my books Bodies from the Bog, Bodies from the Ash or Bodies from the Ice to help students understand the work involved (and the pleasures of research). I conclude by discussing how much fun writing is and encouraging students to write their own stories. If there is time, I may read a small portion from one of my novels (The Very Real Ghost Book of Christina Rose or The Mystery Club of Luna Drive). I always allow time for children to ask questions at the end of my presentation.
