About

Hi, I’m Linda Stanek, the KidLit Conservationist. I’m a children’s author, a teacher, and a conservationist. I speak to kids regularly in schools, as often as I can in zoos, and have spoken at conferences geared toward teachers, librarians, and museums. Other related endeavors:

  • I provided a writing  workshop for conservationists from three different zoos, resulting in a first draft of a text book chapter. (I subsequently was lead-writer on that project, resulting in the final version of that chapter.)
  • I present children’s writing workshops for future (adult) authors.
  • I present writing workshops to kids in a variety of educational settings.
  • I’m currently researching the connection between using children’s books–and authors–for conservation education to kids.
