Speaking


Upcoming Appearances:

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to arrange an interview, talk, or other event in the US, Canada or internationally. I am most comfortable in English but can also do Q&A sessions en français. I enjoy interacting with audiences of all ages and backgrounds and would be happy to give a talk, workshop, or interview on the following topics:

  • History – with a focus on diversity and inclusivity
  • Reconciliation and settler-Indigenous relations
  • How people can achieve their writing and publishing goals

Radio Interviews

Glenn Smith, student: “In Danielle’s class you get more than theory; you get an inside look at the freelance business from an accomplished writer with real-world experience. Her generous and encouraging teaching style makes you feel that if you take the lessons learned and put in the effort, you, too, can get published.”
