Had a fantastic time with the 4th graders at St. Mary's Catholic School in Richmond, VA last week, participating in their annual multi-day Writer's Workshop led by the awesome Susan Trout. I talked a bit about the inspirations for Anton & Cecil and then we had great conversations about starting out, getting stuck, and the publication process. We discussed our works in progress and I even got some suggestions for the future! These young writers were exposed to varied forms of the craft during the week, from poetry to screenwriting, and I'll bet their own stories will be captivating. Thanks to Ms. Trout for having me, and to the students for their kindness and enthusiasm!
