Preferred time frame: 30-40 minutes+; can be tailored to fit the school's schedule

Preferred age groups: 1st-3rd grade is most often the prime audience, but presentations will vary slightly based on the age level of students. For 4th-5th graders, Shana will discuss writing in more depth in addition to an interactive presentation.
