For Educators

Thank you, educators! We appreciate your support of literature and reading.

Below are opportunities just for you.

School Visits:

Each year we send authors to local high schools the day before the festival!* If you want us to consider your school for an author visit, read this informational sheet and then fill out this form.


*We only visit high schools since the books being presented skew older YA and may or may not have suitable content for children under 13.

Author/Educator Mixer:

Educators are invited to attend our second annual Educator & Author Mixer at the festival during the scheduled lunch time.


It is our mission to give students a chance to connect with books and authors, and you are the driving facilitator behind that mission.


Last year we held our first Educator & Author Mixer as a way to allow you and your colleagues to connect with local authors. Success in 2017 means we’re doing it again in 2018.


What is this exactly? From 12:30 – 1 PM we are inviting a panel of local authors and you, the educators, to mingle. Maybe you will find an author whose books you know your students will enjoy. Coordinate a school visit with them! Do you have a creative writing club or class? Ask for pointers.


For questions or interest, email

Spread the word!

We always need assistance spreading the word about NoVa TEEN Book Festival to students! Help us out by putting up fliers, talking to administration about making announcements, offering extra credit to students who come, and doing whatever you can to tell everyone about this FREE event.
