Course Adoptions & Desk Copy Requests

Writers in Classrooms: Red Hen believes that having an author come to discuss their work with students can be a valuable educational tool. Whenever possible, we are happy to arrange physical visits, call-ins, web conferences, and other modes by our writers to classes studying their work. If you would like more information about arranging for a Red Hen author to come to your classroom, please email

Desk & Examination Copies: If you are considering adopting a Red Hen title in your classroom, kindly send your request on official school letterhead listing your school’s address, course name, anticipated class enrollment, and class starting date. Please email
