Rebecca Kai Dotlich is a children’s author and poet as well as being an energetic and engaging speaker. She is most comfortable with groups of children in K-6, designing programs that are both informative and entertaining on several aspects of the writing process. Of course her greatest passion is ... poetry! Rebecca has worked with children in schools across the country, inspiring them through conversations, demonstrations, and, most importantly, reading to and talking with them about poetry. Both her poetry workshops and author visits are highly interactive as she focuses on creativity, word choice, imagery, and observation, stressing writing as a form of play and expression alongside of, and just as important as, the practical rules of writing. She nudges every child to "think like a poet," whether they are writing a poem, story, or essay.
