Interested in Writing for Children? FREE ON LINE Conference Coming Up

As I speak to groups young and old about LIE, my debut novel, (and I have an upcoming talk at the Elmont Public Library on Tuesday, June 5th at 6-8 pm at 700 Hempstead Tpk. Elmont, NY -- FREE, open to the public) there is always someone who comes up to me, and often, shyly admits that they want to be a writer.  

Yes, I think to myself: a reader!  To be a writer you have to be a reader, someone who devours books -- especially books in whatever genre you are interested in writing in. And since we are on the topic of free -- books can be FREE (think: public library).

Beyond being a reader, to be a writer you have to write -- and that sounds simple, but it takes practice, skill, and often, guidance to write well. So, I discovered an upcoming FREE, yes, FREE (because writer's conferences and Master of Fine Arts degrees costs money, sometimes a lot of money), on line children's writer's conference: Write On Con 2012, which will take place Tuesday, August 14 and Wednesday, August 15th. Major agents, editors and children's writers are scheduled to be involved in this second annual Write On Con  --(I hope to be involved -- keep your fingers crossed for me!).  The 2012 theme is "Back to Basics."  And it's all on line -- so you can live anywhere in the world and participate!  Plan ahead. More details at www.writeoncon.com

Truly,

author of LIE
if you haven't read LIE
yet -- put it on your summer reading list!!

Absolutely agree... writing come from reading Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain and Charles Dickens in child years
