Did you ever sing that refrain at summer camp? We did. Every meal time, the camp director would have some sort of announcement for us. Crafts in the lodge this afternoon. Baseball on the meadow before dinner. That kind of thing. My post today consists of a few announcements for the writerly community.
- No SCBWI meeting in Boise for the month of January, since it is a holiday (and my husband’s 50th birthday!). We will be sending out a survey to all members about wishes for 2012 meetings, so if you’d like to take part, let me know.
- However, great SCBWI news. Debut author Sarah Tregay’s book in verse, Love and Leftovers, is now on sale in hard cover and e-book. A Book L[a]unch celebration will be held at Rediscovered Books in downtown Boise on January 6th. Sarah will be hosting a pizza party from noon to one, and a reading and signing event in the evening at 7 pm.
- And if you want some motivation to get your writing jump started in the New Year, join Carol Lynch Williams and her friends for their writing version of Project Runway, which they’re calling Project Writeway. I know Carol, and everything she does has a sense of humor as well as a serious, get-better-as-a-writer attitude. Check her blog for more info: http://throwingupwords.wordpress.com.
