Even with my big teaching news that’ll keep me busy next year (I’m joining the faculty at VCFA!), I have a YA Novel Workshop-Retreat coming at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in California, and I am now accepting applications from serious, talented writers!
I am beyond thrilled to say that I’m joining the faculty of the low-res MFA program in Writing for Children & Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts starting with the January residency!
The Walls Around Us was selected as Salem College’s “First-Year Read” for 2015! This means that all incoming first-year students will be assigned to read Walls over the summer, and then this fall I will be visiting campus to meet with students and give a public lecture about the book!
If you’re in New York City, I’d love to invite you to a talk I am doing for the NY Metro chapter of SCBWI on Finding Your Own Unique Voice on June 9. You do not need to be a member of SCBWI to attend.
My YA Novel Writing Workshops & Retreats at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in February and June 2014 were such a resounding success—and such a joy to lead!—that I am doing another week-long YA novel workshop in June 2015! And exciting news: Applications are now open.
