Bookcamp Next Week! VPL Writing and Reading for Kids

Monday is day one of the Canadian Children’s Book Camp and I’ve spent this week creating some really fun workshop materials. I’m quite excited about the prospect of meeting and working with all the young talent in my workshops and seeing all the magic in their imaginations! It’s only one week, but it’s one of the most fun weeks of the summertime.

There are three Teen Mentors this year: Myself, Chris Humphries and Maggie De Vries! I admire both of these writers so much and really look forward to working together.

The Keynote Speaker lineup is equally impressive as are the workshop leaders for the younger crowd. Look for blog posts on the the bookcamp next week!
