I have no hesitation in recommending Eve as a visiting author, workshop presenter and writer in residence with great appeal to young writers.

Your presentation was very well received by the students as shown by these comments from the Teen Council members.
“She was very confident. The writing exercise was neat.”
“I like how she talked about her life, not just her books.”
“It was amazing and informative. I love how you connect your personal life to your books and how you shared it with us.”
“Her presentation was awesome. She was an engaging speaker. She provided intriguing incite into the process of writing a book. I also thought it was cool to see the way
she got inspiration from her life to put into her work.
Now because of this presentation I am using more of my personal experiences to influence
and inspire my art.”

Want Eve to present a workshop/class to your group?
Eve delivers writing workshops for adults and teens tailored to the needs of the audience. The goal of the workshops is to inspire, energize, and stimulate the imaginations of attendees. Workshops include exercises that focus on creating vivid characters, developing believable worlds, writing sparkling dialogue, and marrying plot and pace to create a page-turner.
Eve’s years of experience as a teacher of human anatomy and director of academic education naturally dovetailed with her desire to share her knowledge of writing and publishing. She has taught writing courses at UofT School of Continuing Studies, presented workshops and participated on panels across North America at numerous events including When Words Collide, San Diego Comic Con, Fan Expo Toronto, Young Voices Writers' Conference, Ottawa International Writers Festival, Word on the Street, RWA National Conferences, the Canadian Authors Association, Ad Astra, the Ontario Writers’ Conference, RWA chapter conferences, and Keep Toronto Reading Lit Lunch.
Examples of recent workshop topics and courses include:
• What In The World?—An Interactive Worldbuilding Workshop
• Pitch Perfect—Writing a Selling Log Line
• Publishing 101—an overview of how both traditional and self-publishing work, how the industry has changed, and factors writers should consider in choosing which route to pursue.
• University of Toronto—School of Continuing Studies: Writing Popular Fiction
• University of Toronto—School of Continuing Studies: Online Mentor
• University of Toronto—School of Continuing Studies:Summer Writing School: Dark Fantasy
It was a great pleasure having Eve Silver as one of our festival guests at the 2016 When Words Collide Festival for Readers and Writers. Eve’s qualifications and personal skills as an author and an educator helped many of our attendees. Her Master Class on “Writing Popular Fiction” was informative and well attended.
Eve’s background as a Romance, Young Adult and Fantasy author made her extremely popular among attendees.
