We’re back from our July blogging vacation. I spent the past month attending two family weddings, tweaking my picture book manuscript, and began querying agents. As a result, I’ve been reading a LOT about the children’s book publishing industry and about writing in general. Here are several articles I’ve read and saved to my Pocket so I can reread them when needed. I hope you enjoy one or more of them!
- How NOT to Write a Picture Book
- How to Tell a Great Story
- The 4 Different Types of Conflict in Dialogue
- Tips for Finding Your Writing Groove Again
- Top 10 Tips for Writers
- When Can You Call Yourself a Writer?
I am a literacy consultant who focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.
