Three local YA authors — Rosiee Thor, Kate Ristau, and Deb Logan, will be here to sign their books! Corvallis Author, Rosiee Thor’s debut sci-fi novel, Tarnished Are the Stars, comes out October 15th! Tigard author, Kate Ristau’s Shadow Girl is the first book in an exciting fantasy series. Vancouver author, Deb Logan’s Faery books have enchanted many a reader.
Join me at the Portland Book Festival for a day of books! I’ll be at the Willamette Writers table in the book fair in the morning, then moderating a Middle-Grade panel with Jasmine Warga and Rosanne Parry. Bring the kids to hear these two amazing authors share their work and their worlds.
Join me for a workshop on Writing about Parenting (Open to the Public)
Share stories that matter and find your way into difficult territory with this class on writing about parenting. Pick up tools for teasing out plot, characters and description, while also exploring how the everyday can be extraordinary.
They say you should write what you know. Who is a better subject than the little faces that look up to you and the experiences you share with them? But it’s not always easy to write about the everyday and the exceptional when those tiny fingers are tapping your shoulder or chasing the cat down the hall. How do we write about parenting in a way that is authentic, purposeful, and meaningful? How do we write the stories that matter? Join us for a class on finding the right words and following the stories that ring true for you.
