T is for TEEN AUTHOR BOOT CAMP

After all the WORK ... it's finally here. Saturday, April 23rd. The day that my writing group (Writers Cubed) and I are putting on a writing conference for teens at the local university.
We have around 125 teens registered! And an amazing line up of authors coming to mingle with and teach the kids how to be awesome writers!

KierstenWhite, author of best seller PARANORMALCY is our keynote speaker-- and other great break-out sessions taught by:
Elana Johnson, Kristen ChandlerFrank Cole , Matthew Kirby,
 Sydney Salter  ,J. Scott Savage  and Emily Wing Smith 

We will be teaching a class and running games as a group too-- it should be great! I'm going to have so much fun with the kids-- (seeing myself in them years ago) and hanging out with our wonderful authors.
Stay tuned for pictures and a fun report.
It's going to be a long day tomorrow-- I better get some sleep! (=
