YIKES! A WHOLE MONTH!

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.

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
