Write. Share. Give.

Welcome to the sixth day of the 14th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!


Please take a moment to listen to today’s announcement, which includes a “mini-challenge,” of sorts.


If you’re a new Slicer, then you’ve probably felt the comment love from one or more of the above-mentioned people this week. I am grateful to the returning Slicers who volunteer to comment on several extra blog posts daily as part of our “Welcome Wagon.” After all, commenting on other writers’ posts is at the heart of this challenge.
Since all of these folks are “Seasoned Slicers,” consider searching for some of their names today to be inspired by their writing.


Need to contact a co-author with a question? Please email us rather than leaving your question within your comment (below). Thank you, in advance, for your patience with us since we receive a high volume of emails during the first week of the challenge.

  • If your last name begins with the letters A – F, please email questions to Amy Ellerman at ellermanamy[at]
  • If your last name begins with the letters G – L, please email questions to Betsy Hubbard at betsymhubbard[at] 
  • If your last name begins with the letters M – Q, please email questions to Beth Moore at beth[at]
  • If your last name begins with the letters R – U, please email questions to Melanie Meehan at meehanmelanie[at] 
  • If your last name begins with the letters V – Z, please email questions to Stacey Shubitz at stacey[at]

Please note: We’re unable to respond to challenge-related questions via Facebook and Twitter.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

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).

  1. Here’s what happens when an affinity for food sparks your imagination – within the confines of all things vegan – but deepens your possibilities because you’re simply a culinary enthusiast. Enter Roasted Pineapple & Cream Cheese French Toast with Toasted Coconuts, Almond Whipped Cream & Butter Sugar Foam Glaze…and a side of Life Lessons. #yum #vegangirl #clickandenjoy ~Carla Michelle
