Thanks to the spectacular @Alybee930, I had the chance to speak to a wonderful group of Write Girls this weekend who are all – already – fabulous writers! Though I was only there for the fiction half of their non-fiction/fiction session, I was so impressed with the entire day. With a mentor for every girl to work with, and a journal for every girl to write in, and guest writers to offer critique and writing exercises, the Write Girls program is a well-oiled machine.
Here I am with (L) Keren Taylor, Program Director, and another fabulous writer and my workshop co-leader, (M) Sherri Smith, author of FLYGIRL, named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, 2010. I'm the goofball on the right.
And just for fun, here is me looking even goofballier in front of a crowd:
