MEETING TOMORROW'S AUTHORS
I was invited to Hunter Middle School in Ooltewah, Tennessee to speak with a group of students who have been studying fantasy literature. They just completed a sophisticated creative writing workshop, producing their own fantasy works.
I read a few sections from Havenwood and answered questions about my process ... It was super cool! What an awesome class.
I wish I had gotten to take a class like this when I was their age.
This was a great opportunity to "go back and time and give advice to a younger version of myself." So many bright, gifted articulate young people.
Thank you to Christy Baker and her colleagues for teaching the next generation of American writers!
