Tessa Emily Hall is available to speak at groups of all ages, including but not limited to youth groups, schools, conferences, and colleges. In her writing/publishing workshops, she draws upon her experience as a young author, Associate Literary Agent, and YA Acquisitions Editor to engage the audience and teach the craft in a way that is interactive and simple for young writers to grasp.
She enjoys giving motivational and inspirational talks as well. In these presentations, Tessa shares her journey toward publication as a teen and explains why she chose to pursue it at a young age. She then challenges the audience by discussing how they can develop a plan that will help them embrace their uniqueness, discover their potential, and pursue the impossible. Each session will include a PowerPoint presentation and handouts for students to take notes and apply what they've learned.
