Next week I’ll be leaving Austin for Montpeiler, Vermont for several days to teach in conjunction with the winter residency of the M.F.A. in Writing for Children and Young Adults program from Vermont College/Union Institute & University. At the moment, I’m in packing and preparation mode!
I’ll be sure to update my blog readers on my academic adventures on Spookycyn as well as offering what I can on Cynsations. But please understand that if posts are fewer for a while, it’s a temporary condition and I’m still doing my part to herald great voices and books.
