Cynsational Return: What I Did On My Summer "Vacation"

By Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

Welcome to fall, Cynsational readers!

How was your summer?

Mine was, in a word: Busy.

In June, I taught the VCFA alumni mini res and sampled maple creemees.
Then it was on to the ALA annual conference in San Francisco (with Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani).
In July, I returned to the VCFA summer residency (with my winter 2015 MFA students).
Fellow faculty Kathi Appelt, Shelley Tanaka and Rita Williams-Garcia
Congratulations, graduates!
At the end of July, I joined the GeekyCon crew in Orlando.
August took me to Richardson (Texas) Public Library to lead a writing workshop.
And to Ghost Ranch in New Mexico to teach via A Room of Her Own.
And to East Texas Book Festival in Tyler (with Michelle Newby)
And to Mansfield (TX) Book Festival (with E.E. Charlton-Trujillo and Kwame Alexander)
Meanwhile, I did my best to write when I could, where I could!
