For the past three years now I have joined The Highlights Foundation as a faculty member for their annual summer camp. It’s an amazing opportunity for authors and illustrators to learn more about the business of picture books. Participants have a chance to be mentored by published authors and illustrators while they work on manuscripts for the week.
Attendees are also fed daily by the AMAZING kitchen staff (which is mostly what brings me back year after year). Seriously, you really can’t beat having a quiet place to read, write, and dream where you don’t have to cook or do dishes while hanging out with other writer/dreamers!
If you can, I highly recommend signing up. You won’t regret it. Hope to see you there!
