Eep! I’ve been off my own blog for a whole month? That’s insane! And I’ve had so much to talk about too! I guess I’ll just focus on the immediate things:
Collingswood Book Festival is tomorrow! Hooray! And it’s going to rain. I have never been to this festival without it raining. They’ve got pictures of it having been outside on their website but I think they might be photoshopped. Because I’ve never seen this thing happen with the sun out.
RoundRobinWrites.com will be there again this year! Which is super exciting. As is the fact that we’ve got 2 bags of books for the winners of the seek and find. I’m excited to launch this-it was a lot of fun to watch the little kids run around looking for the birds last year. But last year we didn’t have the reward for the seek and find-it was just for the newsletter sign up. Now we have three bags! How exciting!
Even more exciting is what’s coming up in January! I was accepted to the MFA in Writing for Children and YA at Sierra Nevada College out in Lake Tahoe! And my very first residency will actually be the abroad residency in Jamaica. We’re going to Goblin Hill.
While I’m excited to go to Jamaica, I’m also very excited to improve my credentials. I want my writing to get better and I know it will with further instruction. I’m also excited to make new connections and meet with actual editing and publishing professionals.
I loved Rowan’s MA in Writing program. It allowed me to experiment with all sort of fiction and non-fiction. But I’m ready to focus in now.
