literacy & Writers' Conference Speaking

Children's literacy is my mission, and I have a particular passion for reaching reluctant readers. I have an extensively researched presentation, 5 Ways to Reach Reluctant Readers, which I have presented both virtually and in person at events like Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival and CCIRA.

I believe in the importance of sharing knowledge, and love connecting with fellow writers. 

You can find details on speaking fees, travel, and scheduling in my speaking kit.

Previous Events

Virtual visits are a great alternative to in-person visits when there are time or budget constraints. 

Teachers and librarians: want to book a FREE 20 min. author virtual visit?​ Use the Contact page to send me a message. I have a limited amount of slots available.

I love doing author visits! Meeting kids and educators are the best celebration of reading, writing, and literacy. If you are an educator interested in having me visit your school or library, you can find more information in my author visit kit.

and many, many more...!

"Fleur's presentation was well-prepared, thorough, and perfectly structured and she took the time to answer all participants' questions. She was engaging, approachable, and informative. If it wasn't already evident from her top-notch novels, Fleur is passionate about children's literature, has impeccable craft, and knows her stuff!"
-Justin Colón, owner of The Kidlit Hive

​"Our patrons were so pleased with the virtual writing workshop Fleur taught for Arapahoe Libraries. It was interactive, engaging, and dug into the elements of writing mysteries so that participants left with tools for writing their own."
-Kara Seal, Senior Events Specialist, Teens and Tweens, Arapahoe Libraries, CO 

I would highly recommend Fleur Bradley for a school visit. Her presentations can be tailored to your specific needs and tie in nicely to the grade level audience. (..) A great experience for students and staff.”
-Mr. Mavel, EL Coordinator and Lead Mentor, Banning Lewis Ranch Academy 

“Amazing! This was a great talk on a topic that you usually don't hear from an author. Very unique and approachable and inspiring. Thanks for the boost!"
