Trent Reedy is flexible and adaptable with his presentations. He is happy to offer readings, give talks, answer questions, or even to facilitate writing classes or workshops. He has experience with many different kinds of audiences from seniors to college students to first graders, speaking about writing, any or all of his books, or even the Army and his experiences in the war in Afghanistan. Those interested in Trent’s presentations are encouraged to communicate their questions or requests so that he can tailor presentations to fit the situation.
