Happy Fourth of July! Hope everyone had a great long weekend! :)
As you know because I babble about it constantly, I love summer...
One of the many reasons summer rocks is I'm lucky enough to facilitate a Teen Writer's Workshop with Justin the Librarian at the Cape May County Library every year. We meet on Tuesdays and this year, Justin's publishing the anthology of our short stories and the book will appear in all the libraries across Cape May County. :) Tomorrow we're bringing in our
fave books (I'm looking forward to some new reads) to study what the best authors do right. :)
Besides the Teen Writer's Workshop, I'm also volunteering to teach creative writing at a Summer College for students in grades 5-8 in Atlantic City starting today. :) Then, off to summer teaching at Atlantic Cape Community College.
Speaking of teaching.. I'm teaching writing at Rowan University this fall!
Yay!!! I'm so excited to join the Rowan University writing community. Not only as a teacher, but as a student. I'm taking a class a semester to earn my Masters of Arts degree in Writing. :) :) :) It's been a looonnnggg time since I've been on the other side of the desk.
Rowan and I go way back. It's where I met my hubby. Except, we both weren't attending the college at the time. And we met off campus.. And we knew each other from high school.. Anyway, it's a long story. :)
Last, but certainly not least, stay tuned for a few exciting things..
Like, a teen and author call for submissions that's covered in pink. :)
Plus, Pretty Tough Tuesdays are back next week. Kudos to the L.A. Sparks' Candace Parker who returned to basketball 58 days after giving birth. Impressive.
And.. congrats to my writing friend, C. After many years of hard work, she snagged an amazing agent!! Congrats, C!!!!! :)
Happy Monday, everyone! ;)
