Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pronounce Miel?

Mi-el (two syllables). “Mi” as in “do re mi,” “el” like Elle Magazine. 

Do you do classroom visits? 

As of May 2021, I am not available for daytime classroom visits, through at least January 2022. However, I am available for evening and weekend conversations with classes, groups, and book clubs. 

I've worked with students from middle school through college for eight years, and I love talking about all things books and writing. I can present and lead workshops on developing ideas, creating a writing practice, revision, and the publishing journey. I'm also happy to talk to book groups and especially to LGBTQ+ teen groups about IT GOES LIKE THIS and queer joy.
