About this Skype lesson

I love talking with high school and middle age students about the writing process, about how I came to write the MATCHED trilogy (and other works). I especially love answering student questions. My presentation includes information about the poetry, art, landscape, music, and people that influence my writing, and I also love talking with students about ways to find inspiration for their own work.

Ally is available for 5 Skype visits. Each visit will consist of a 30 minute question/answer with students who have already read MATCHED.

My honors literature classes absolutely love your trilogy! Please discuss with us the ins and outs of becoming a successful writer. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Our classes commence the end of August.
