Hello Nerdy Chicks, Writers, Readers, and all around wonderful people. Have you been busy honing your craft since last summer? We hope so!
The five of us have been doing just that. We’ve collectively been very busy this year! Some of the things we’ve dealt with have been stressful things, other things have been amazing. But altogether we’ve had too many things to juggle. So when we put our heads together, we found that we are unable to devote the kind of time it takes to pull off Kidlit Summer School this year. 😦 As you all probably know, it is a herculean effort to put all of the amazing pieces of this event together, almost a full time job. So, for 2017, we’re going to have to go on vacation.
We know this is disappointing to many of you. It is to us, too. We love the webinars, the blog posts, and the exercises! Most of all we loved interacting with all of you and seeing many of you move forward in your craft and your careers. Kudos to you all!
We want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped make KLSS awesome. We appreciate all of the authors and industry professionals who’ve contributed their time to share knowledge. And we thank all of you for your devotion to the program, and for your dedication not just to becoming writers, but to becoming the best writers you can be.
Please stay subscribed to the blog. Announcements regarding Kidlit Summer School and other future events will be made here. You won’t want to miss anything good!
We wish you all of the very best moving forward, and hope that you will keep us posted on your good news. In the meantime, we hope you’ll enjoy some vacation time too, and maybe pick up a good book to read in the sun!
Best wishes to you all,
The Kidlit Summer School Board of Education
