Awesome Events of Awesomeness

We’re only a couple of weeks away from the Writing for Charity event. That’s still plenty of time to register and make sure you get a spot. It’s going to be great this year. I think the new format is going to work really well, there are some amazing authors donating their time and critiques, and the list of silent auction items keeps growing. My own agent, Stephen Fraser, has graciously donated an “ask an agent anything” personal phone call. Want some one-on-one time with an agent? Register! Then come and bid. And the best part, it’s all for charity to put books in the hands of kids.

One of the best free book events in Utah is happening next Tuesday, the 13th of March. Brandon Mull (author of Fablehaven) is launching the second book in his New York Times bestselling Beyonders series. There will be lots of fun stuff happening, including actors in costume, games & activities, sketch comedy, and more. Shannon Hale will be there, and I’ll be on stage for a bit along with a few other surprise guests. Bring the whole family!

The details:

Spaces in this year’s Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Workshop are filling up fast. My fantasy workshop is already full, but there are still some excellent classes open. If you want to write for kids of any age, this is one of the best writing workshops out there.

Our regional conference of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is coming up in April on the 20th and 21st in Boise, Idaho. I’ll be speaking there, and probably post more details closer to the event.
