If you haven't yet registered for the 20th Annual Writing and Illustrating for Children Conference...you'd better go register here at the event website (right after you read this post), because there are just a few spots left!!! And to entice you just a little more...here's another one of our FANTASTIC distinguished faculty; Author Deb Lund.
Deb has written four books including; TELL ME MY STORY, MAMA; which Publishers Weekly says in it's starred review: "The shelf of new baby books may be crowded, but it's well worth making room for this graceful, gently funny entry."
Deb is a former music and classroom teacher, as well as a librarian, and founding director of a home-school support program. She has led workshops at the Orcas Island Writers Festival, and will be presenting at The Whidbey Island Writers Conference, The SCBWI Oregon Spring Conference, and of our course our SCBWI WWA Annual Conference.
Here's a Q & A from an interview with Deb on the Check It Out blog.
Read more about Deb here on Sidelights, and you can find out more information on Deb's website and blog. A fun fact about Deb is that is when she was a 5th grader she had a poem published in a book of student writing called WONDER WRITERS.
Writing the first draft or revising? Which is your favorite?
There’s great energy around first drafts for me – nonstop spewing onto paper – but I love rearranging the pieces, as if there’s only one best way to put together a story’s puzzle.
