Huzzah Fellow Workshoppers!
Last week, I spent five days with nine other children’s writers at the Highlights Founders Workshop with Kim Griswell. We wrote, we ate, and we laughed.

So huzzah to the workshop attendees, Kim and the staff of Highlights!
It could not have been a better week, or come at a better time!
