Sara Z. and Me Talk Shop

So, since this blog (and entire website) has been dormant for months, and then again for months before that, I thought this entry would fit the theme of “why I don’t do much” perfectly.

Some of you may know about my health challenges and how that affects my writing, and YA author/ generally rad person Sara Zarr gets to the heart of it in her interview with me on her podcast This Creative Life.

I still haven’t heard it because I hate listening to the sound of my own voice, and also when I try to open it on itunes it won’t work yet.  So hopefully it is as hilarious as I remember it to be.  And in a good way.  In fact, if someone could let me know, that would be great.

Meanwhile, it is less than a month to the great WIFYR (Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers)!  June 18-22 at the Waterford School in Sandy, UT!  There are still spots available if you want to sign up for this truly life-changing conference.  I won’t be teaching full-time this year, but I will be speaking on Friday afternoon and I am PSYCHED.  If you, too, are psyched about writing and the writing life, this is the place to be.  Tell them Em Dawg sent you.

The Skinny:

For all children’s authors seeking to be published and/or improve their work, Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers in Sandy, UT, is the conference not to be missed. This year the five-day conference, June 18-22, 2012, offers nine morning workshops for the chance to get your manuscript critiqued by an experienced author/illustrator/editor faculty and afternoon classes.  http://www.wifyr.com/
This year the conference sponsors its first annual Writing Contest and Scholarship. Don’t miss your chance at a $1,000 award. http://www.wifyr.com/blog/2012/03/09/1rst-annual-wifyr-writing-competition-and-fellowship-award/

    Can’t get it to work either, Em. Do I have to subscribe on iTunes first?

    That was really fun. Thanks for sharing. It was so great to hear your voice and to know a little bit more about this past year. I’m so sad that we missed the part that got cut off–all the good stuff about what’s actually been going on with you. Oh well.
    Oh, and YES, as always, you were funny. :) (even when it’s not funny stuff)
