Conferences, Writing Classes and a Lion (oh my!)

Spring is roaring in with a full calendar of events--and I'm not just talking about my sons' baseball and Ultimate Frisbee schedules!

This Saturday, April 18, I'll be serving as a friendly mentor at the SCBWI Western Washington 2015 Conference, where I am especially looking forward to hearing the amazing Nina Laden's keynote.

On Saturday, May 9, from 10-12, inspired by my work as a mentor at the First Five Pages online writing workshop, I'll be teaching a class on polishing the first chapter of your novel at the Woodinville Library. Please do come--it's free and bringing a work-in-progress is not required! As further incentive, if you attend the May 9 workshop, you can sign up for a free 25 minute one-on-one manuscript critique with me on May 10th!

And then, of course, there's the previously mentioned Cavalcade of Authors West in Tacoma on May 2, and the Spring Author Celebration in The Dalles, OR, on May 30--along with a writing class on May 31!

It's going to be a wild ride!
