Writing can be messy. Sometimes it involves time machines, killer robots, and, just perhaps, even a cow jilted on her wedding day.
This playshop is especially geared towards young writers, ages nine through teens, as well as those young at heart.
We will be writing, so please have a pen or pencil handy and something to write on. Sharing is optional, but strongly encouraged.
This meeting will be online via Zoom. If your registration is confirmed, you will receive an email 24 hours before with login instructions
About Jennifer J. Stewart
Award-winning author Jennifer J. Stewart is known for her seriously funny books for children. Her debut novel, concerning a hot-headed, time-traveling, princess-chasing dragon named Madam Yang, is a favorite among schoolchildren. If That Breathes Fire, We’re Toast! was named to VOYA’s Best Fantasy list and the Oklahoma master list. She followed up her initial success with a tale of a rich orphan and a greedy stepmother in The Girl Who Has Everything, which Kirkus Reviews called “both amusing and engaging... fluffy and fun, with just the right touch of message.”
Her latest novel, Close Encounters of a Third-World Kind, is loosely based upon her family’s real life adventures working as medical volunteers in the kingdom of Nepal. Jennifer tended patients in village hospitals and taught health education classes to women and children. She also trekked to Annapurna Base Camp and rode a runaway elephant. This book was nominated for Arizona's Grand Canyon Reader Award, Connecticut's Nutmeg Book Award, and Maryland's Black-Eyed Susan Award.
