One of my favorite things about being an author is being part of an incredible community of people who write and illustrate books for kids and young adults. Some of you interact with these authors via Skype and online, and you already know how much they rock. The rest of you are about to find out, because more than THIRTY guest authors have offered to visit us at Teachers Write! over the next ten weeks.
Meet your guest authors…
Gae Polisner (More than a guest! Gae’s hosting weekly Friday Feedback!)
Jen Vincent (Jen’s more than a guest, too! She’s a teacher-writer who’ll be blogging every Sunday about her journey & inviting you to join the conversation.)
Some guest authors will be offering Monday morning mini-lessons. Some will be providing Tuesday & Thursday writing prompts, and some have signed up to answer your questions on Wednesdays and hang out to be part of our Friday Writing Happy Hour conversations. They’re doing this because they support teachers and librarians, so please support them, too, by purchasing and sharing their books whenever you can.
The list above is a work in progress. It includes folks who signed up and committed to visit on specific days. Other authors will be dropping in from time to time to answer questions and join our conversations, too, so get ready for some surprises along the way. (You never know who’s going to show up at writing camp!)
Note for authors: If you signed up for a day but you’re not on this list yet, please let me know and I’ll fix that. (With
570 more than 700 teachers/librarians signed up so far, it’s been a little crazy around here… If you haven’t signed up to help but would like to join us as a guest author, please drop me an email (kmessner at kate messner dot com) I’m focusing on traditionally published folks for now because those are the books teachers are most likely to know & have as models in their classrooms – also because I don’t want this to get too overwhelming. Thanks!
