Elinor Teele loves talking to listeners (of all ages) in-person and virtually.

  • Films & TV: As a screenwriter & director, she is available to discuss her professional journey in Q&As, panels, and writing workshops. She is especially interested in helping early careerists gain a foothold in the industry.
  • Books: As an author, she has presented at schools, libraries, and similar venues. Visits can include 50-minute talks, story development workshops, author readings, Q&As, and more!

Schools can check out her Activities & Projects section, which includes educational kits created by K-12 teachers. Many activities align with Common Core & state-mandated standards and can be incorporated into Elinor’s visit.

  • You can view Elinor’s upcoming schedule in Events.
  • Please feel free to contact her with questions and requests.

I could not recommend Elinor Teele highly enough if you are looking for an author visit for your school. I have a lot of author-hosting experience at this point, so believe me when I say that few have their presentation as well-planned and targeted as she did.

This was way more than “let me tell you about my book and my life as an author”—she taught a complete storytelling lesson to a roomful of giddy last-period-on-Friday 6th graders with the skill of a professional teacher.

“Thank you for your delightful presentation to the children at Pathways yesterday afternoon! The way you were able to capture their attention from the very start was terrific. And I wouldn’t be surprised if you sparked several of them to write a book!”
