Writing for Young Readers Seminar at JHU

I am so looking forward to going to the Writing for Young Readers Seminar at Johns Hopkins this Saturday. For $40 dollars ($50 now) I get a half-day seminar PLUS a one-page critique by an editor or agent. What a bargain!

There are still about 10 spaces left. Hope to see you there.

Publishing 911

Enjoy this hilarious post by Paperback Writer (42 Novels in 5 Genres). Makes you wish there really were such a thing. If you can't get satisfaction at least it gives you a place to vent your writerly frustration.

Snow Day!


The snow here today in Maryland is not quite this bad but it's on it's way to getting there. I've decided (wisely I think) to stay home and putter around the house, hopefully, do some writing. As I look out on the very windy, very snowy day I'm inspired to write a poem.

Gray-white sky, snow swirling in the wind
like a dust storm without the sand.
Spring trying to fight its way in but losing
as the last of winter leaves slowly and stubbornly,
kicking and screaming, in a snowy haze of glory.
