Let’s Talk About Writing!
Did you know that Sal Sawler is available for school visits, festivals, and workshops? It’s true, and they offer a range of options for everyone—plus the option to customize a workshop to meet your specific needs.
Sal Sawler is the award-winning author of three books: 100 Things You Don’t Know About Nova Scotia; 100 Things You Don’t Know About Atlantic Canada – For Kids; and the Moonbeam Spirit Award-winning Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything (with Frankie MacDonald). When they’re not writing books, they’re working as a publicist for graphic novel publisher Conundrum Press, reviewing children’s literature, or writing web content for tech companies.
They’ve learned a lot while wearing all these hats, and they love to share their knowledge and experience through interactive presentations and workshops.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to Omicron, Sal will only be booking virtual visits for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year.
Choose from the following options, or reach out to inquire about customized workshops, festivals, signings, or other event appearances.
