Events & Presentations

Would you like Inara to come to YOUR school? Well then, give her a call!

Inara would love to visit your school to talk about writing and the journey to becoming an author. She has a slideshow and video presentation that is designed for students from 6th–12th grade, and can be used for a range of group sizes from 30 to 400. Inara has spoken to groups all over the country, and received wonderful feedback on her presentation. The presentation typically takes 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the amount of time allotted to questions.

As the wife of an elementary school principal and mother to two grade-school aged kids, Inara knows time and budgets are tight for schools. As a result, she does not generally charge for school visits. She does request that you announce and publicize her visit at least a week in advance, and allow students an opportunity to purchase the book after the presentation. Please contact Inara if you are interested in or have questions about bringing her to your school.

Here’s what a few educators have said about Inara’s presentations:

“Inara Scott came to Jordan Middle School to talk about her new book, The Candidates . . . a great story . . . and she definitely got readers interested in the book. But, her real gift to the students was her wisdom about writing and the writing process. She has a long history of writing experience in a variety of jobs as well as being an author, and she was able in her presentation to bring her wisdom right to their level. Teachers who were there, too, were very impressed and went away inspired about their job!”

– Ann McQueen, Jordan Middle School, Palo Alto, CA

“Inara’s presentation was engaging and enlightening. A few teachers told me it was the best author presentation they heard, and many told me they enjoyed it. We specifically enjoyed hearing about Inara’s failed attempts to get a book published and her insight into how to create a plot (giving a character the most horrible experience to them). The pictures from Inara’s youth kept the attention of our students as well . . . Inara did an amazing job keeping our group engaged in her presentation.”
