I LOVE talking with kids about writing, reading and inspiring! Whether it’s one class, grade or school – I’m eager to share my passion with your students, teachers, staff and families.
I have several programs available that can be tailored to any age group. We can also customize a presentation to your needs.
From Inspiration to Publication (Grades K-5)
How does an idea turn into a book? Students participate and discover the journey to publication. Visual aids include author’s brainstorm, drafts, storyboards, revisions and more!
A Day In the Life (Grades 3-12)
You don’t sit and watch movies and eat ice cream all day? Take a look at an author’s day from brainstorming, research, drafting, editing, critiquing and more!
Iditarod Adventure (Grades K-8)
THREE, TWO, ONE, GO! We’re off to the races! Students learn about all things Iditarod: history, preparation, race day, challenges and all about the adventure of a lifetime!
How to Make Your Story Shine (Grades 3-12)
Are your students working on a creative writing project? This presentation shares insights on how to make their work shine whether it’s fiction, non-fiction, picture book, or novel.
Evening Programs & Family Nights
Bring the entire family and get everyone involved! My crafts and activities will be family fun for all and have even reluctant readers racing to the book shelves.
"Nicki Jacobsmeyer came to our school for a family literacy night and turned it into a literacy adventure! She provided hands on activities that engaged all ages, spent one-on-one time with our students, and had lively presentations that had the crowd interacting and howling for more! Nicki Jacobsmeyer was a joy to work with, was flexible and made our Family Literacy Night a night to remember. This is an author event you don't want to miss!"
~ Jill Burkemper, Warrior Ridge Elementary School Librarian
"Nicki visited the Scenic Regional Library in Warrenton for an author visit and the audience was enthralled! It was attended and enjoyed by patrons of ALL ages. Nicki has the knack to hold your attention and answer any questions you have in her interactive presentation. I highly recommend that you book Nicki Jacobsmeyer for your next literary event!"
~ Laura McBride, Youth Services Scenic Regional Library~Warrenton Branch
