Writing Workshop: A Whole New World

I'm off to Edward Devotion School in Brookline, Massachusetts (alma mater of JFK) to present a workshop for the eighth graders called "A Whole New World: Creating A Sense of Place in Fiction." Can't wait to read their writing!

BTW, if any of you review books for young readers in print or in cyberspace and want an advance copy of Rickshaw Girl, please let me know.

Hi Mitali:

I'd love a copy of "Rickshaw Girl"! I missed the contest, so didn't ask :)

Have fun at the workshop.

You bet! Thanks for asking.

Coming your way! It's a quick read, scheduled for release in February, so you'll have lots of time ...

We have a great big ReadingYA blog we'd love to review your work on, if you're still open to that. We just got asked by Penguin Putnam to do one, so we're new to the game, but we're in it!

Hi Mayan,

Thanks for asking about the stories. I loved being with you all, too. It's going to take me a little while to read and post the stories as I'm under a tight writing deadline myself. Look for what I thought were the best five at the beginning of next week right here on the Fire Escape. I'll let your teachers know when they're up. In the meantime, your teacher and Mrs. McDonnell have copies of all the stories, though, so you can keep going with yours. Do you write all the time?

We'd love a copy as well, Mitali.
