For many, 2016 was not the greatest year. Not to minimize all that went wrong, but... how about a moment of celebration for all that went right?
The following are the most awesome things that happened in my writing world in 2016:
WINNING the 2016 Oregon Literary Fellowship for Young Readers Literature
which allowed me to attend two amazing writing workshops.
The 4th Annual Better Books Workshop: an amazing, intimate group of talented writers, jam-packed with info on the craft from an awesome faculty, including Heather Alexander (Pippin Properties), Abby Ranger (HarperCollins), Kate Sullivan (Delacorte Press) and Andrew Harwell (HarperCollins).
