Why I Like Homeschool Fairs

24th June, 2009 - Posted by Claire Larsen - No Comments

Ever since I was a child, I couldn’t sell anything. That includes Girl Scout cookies and band candy.  And when my boys began selling things for scouts and soccer, it wasn’t any easier. Going door to door, taking forms to my workplace, all of it was painful.   So, if I hate selling things, why do I have such fun spending twelve hour days at convention centers (with hard concrete floors) selling curriculum for Classical Academic Press?

I like going to homeschool fairs because I like writing books and I like talking to homeschool moms and dads about the books that I (and other CAP authors) have written.

I like hearing the ideas that moms and dads have — what they like, what they don’t like, what they would like but can’t find because it doesn’t exist. As I listen to their concerns, I learn how I can make the books I write better and how I can meet the needs and desires of those who want to buy them.

I like homeschool fairs, because I always come home with tired feet (which I don’t like) but with a renewed enthusiasm to keep writing.

In a couple weeks I’ll be in northern Virigina at a homeschool fair, and I’m looking forward to it. Maybe I’ll see some of you there.
