The only thing I like doing as much as writing, is talking about writing. If you’d like me to speak at your school, library or writer's conference, I'd be happy to! I could read some poems, talk about the long and winding road I took to becoming an author, and answer questions about my writing process. Or I could run poetry writing workshops that are guaranteed to help bring out your inner poet. Each of my presentations are tailor-made to suit the specific needs of the people who have invited me to speak.

Here’s what two students from Corona Del Mar High School in Newport, California had to say about my poetry writing workshop:

“Your presentation was amazing! Thanks for teaching me how to ‘show not tell.’ Poetry has become sooo much easier. Your workshop was as delicious as an Oreo cookie!” —Hannah Lindt

“Your presentation of poetry was like Prometheus bringing fire to the world!! That’s a simile.” —Elise Molinar

And here’s a note from Randi Wall, the librarian at Cheltenham High School near Philadelphia: “On behalf of the entire CHS Community, I would like to thank you for your visit and presentations. Your performances were very exciting and inspiring for the students and faculty. We received rave reviews from all who participated.”

And here are some kind words from Jordana Shaw, the librarian at Nashoba Brooks School in Concord, Massachusetts: “Thank you so much for coming to Nashoba Brooks last week. What a pleasure it was to have you visit with us. Thank you for sharing your writing and yourself with our girls. You have a wonderful way with girls of this age!”

A nice letter from Carol Jago, Santa Monica High School English teacher and director of the California Reading and Literature Project at UCLA: “Sonya Sones may be a born writer, but she is also a born teacher. She walked into my classroom at Santa Monica High School and immediately captured the students with her stories about writing from experience and from the heart.”
