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|
|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!|
