Kautzer's Bio

Kim Kautzer is WriteShop’s creative director and co-author of WriteShop I and II. More than anything, Kim loves to encourage and equip homeschool moms who have a tough time teaching writing. From her own experience, she can identify with the feeling of failure that follows when blank paper, reluctant child, and insecure parent share the same space. Her inspiring workshops help you discover that teaching writing is more objective than you think, and with the right tools, you can guide and motivate your struggling writer.

Kim and Jim homeschooled for 15 years, graduating their youngest in 2003. Bitten by the travel bug, the Kautzers trek as far away as England to visit their kids and grandkids. The rest of the time, they make their home in Southern California, where Kim enjoys reading, growing veggies, tinkering with the Sunday crossword, and drinking tea. Award-winning WriteShop, her unique and successful writing program, has been honored as one of Cathy Duffy’s 102 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculumwhere Kim blogs about writing at In Our Write Minds.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Kim Kautzer and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
