Recently, I had a fun time with questions asked by Deborah Kalb for her website. Check it out for some insight into the new book WILLIAM AND THE WITCH’S RIDDLE and into the way I write.

MAZZA Museum Summer Conference & Writing Strand

          I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be co-teaching the writing strand at the MAZZA Museum Summer Conference this year. FYI:  the Mazza Museum is the largest museum of original artwork by children’s book illustrators in the world. The museum’s goal is to promote literacy and enrich the lives of all people through the art of children’s literature. And it’s in Findlay, Ohio.

 

This year’s artist line-up—Wonderful!

 

 

I’d love to see a lot of writers there, as well. We writers learn so much from how illustrators envision and execute the art of picture books. The link for the conference:  MAZZA Museum Summer Conference, 2015
See you this summer!

Hey!  I just wanted to shout out that a short blog post I wrote about training one’s ear to the music found in poems is up at the RhyPicBoMo site at:  http://angiekarcher.wordpress.com/  .   (That’s:  Rhyming Picture Book Month site.) Scroll down a little below the information about SCBWI.

 

Enjoy!

(And write a poem today to celebrate National Poetry Month!)
