I love to speak with readers and writers, and can give presentations and workshops to groups large and small. I am also an experienced conference panelist and keynote speaker. Topics cover the craft and business of writing for young adults, the writing life, fairy tales and folklore, the historical underpinnings of my work, and more.

If you’re interested in booking me for your event, contact me at and we’ll hammer out the details!

    “Elizabeth Bunce was a dynamic speaker at our Mother Daughter Book Club. She delighted both the adults and the girls with her humor and her stories of writing and being published. We could have listened to her for another hour! I was thrilled to have someone influence our middle school girls who is a young, strong, intelligent woman. We will await her next novel with anticipation.” –Kathi Knop, librarian, Mission Valley Middle School, Prairie Village, KS

"Having Elizabeth visit our library and the surrounding schools was a wonderful experience. The students responded enthusiastically to meeting a 'real author' and were inspired to work harder at their own writing. Elizabeth helped our kids to see themselves as authors."  ~
Michelle Blank,  Young Adult Librarian, Lagrange Public Library, Lagrange, IN
