Every year, we have a Career Day at Blendon Middle School in Westerville, Ohio. This year it is on Tuesday, May 14th. There are three morning sessions where students get to listen to presenters for about twenty minutes, and then a career fair in the gym in the afternoon.
Are there any local writers who might want to come? We don't have any money to pay you, but we have had Joe Blundo and Kevin Joy from the Columbus Dispatch, as well as novelists Linda Barr and Linda Gerber, so you could join this illustrious group.
There is always free food and coffee, and if you are really lucky, awesome swag like a string bag. More importantly, it gives authors a chance to connect with students and vice versa.
We are open to other professions as well. Just let me know if you'd like to come!
