Hello, Summer Schoolers! Week 4 has sadly ended, but we still have a few treats left for you. Think of it as Afterschool for all of you overachievers.badge final 4x4-brighter heart

We want to bring your attention to what is to come in the week ahead, including TWO great Summer School webinars! Here we go!

#KidlitSummerSchool Afterschool Webinars:

This coming Thursday, August 11th, at 8pm EST we will be hosting our very special Author Roundtable webinar with Authors Crystal Allen (MG), Josh Funk (PB) and Jo Whittemore (MG) who will share their expertise on children’s books and their own personal writing journeys. Details on getting a link to watch this webinar and how to submit your questions for the panel were sent out yesterday. Please check your inbox and refer to that email for further information.

Questions for the Author Roundtable must be submitted by midnight EST on Tuesday, August 9!

And that’s not all! Stay tuned for a very special upcoming webinar with folks from the publishing world. We will announce when we have details to share!

Both webinars are going to be a clucking good time, filled with lots of Nerdy Chick knowledge. You will not want to miss out.

    Board of Education – @dawnmyoung @kamikinard @leezaworks @marciecolleen @sudiptabq – Thank you so much for a great summer session. I believe I missed one day (commented at 12:04am) due to limited internet access at a retreat. But it was a great experience and so valuable. You five are amazing and so generous with your time and knowledge. 🙂

  30. I did comment on every post, but one day this summer I was really sick and it was hard for me to get out of bed and get to my computer, so I posted the following morning. But, I did want to commend Sudipta and Marcie and everyone who took the time to put this worthwhile summer school program together. You are giving so much to the writing community. I enjoyed reading the post every day and getting new ideas. Many, many thanks.
