Ned Hayes speaks regularly in classrooms and to educational gatherings. He is a former elementary teacher and university lecturer and is comfortable in educational settings at all levels. He has also presented his work to teaching and literature conferences and has been a featured presenter at the ALA, international literary conferences and the AWP Conference in Washington D.C.
Classroom presentations can be customized for any educational level. Please note that Ned Hayes does not charge a fee for classroom appearances: only travel expenses.
To book Ned Hayes for a classroom appearance, contact his publicist at Kristen Iverson. Please indicate in the subject line that this is a non-paid classroom appearance, so that the request can be routed appropriately.
