From the Board of Education

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.ScreenShot_Chick

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

  8. I wonder if you could repost previous years’ KidLit Summer School blog articles. Last year was my first year. I’d love to see information that was posted in previous years. Reuse and Recycle : ) Enjoy your time off!

      Hi Virginia, All of the previous Kidlit Summer School Blog articles are still here, you can just scroll down to see them. We don’t have access to the exercises and webinars at this point, but the advice from authors is still there!

    Kami, Sudipta and everyone, SO sorry to hear that things have been so stressful. It seems stress doesn’t want to take a vacation! Hopefully everyone will have some time to relax during the summer, and maybe—this is just a suggestion—when you consider doing summer school again, not do posts daily, but maybe every other day or whatever. Do what makes sense and makes it doable for everyone involved, and if it’s still too much, do what you’ve done now—let it go. It’s been great and if you do ANYthing again, regardless of what that is, it’ll still be great! 😀 EVERYthing you’ve done for us, for FREE mind you, has been aMAzing and so VERY appreciated 😀 oxox

  15. I won’t say I’m not sad, but I do completely understand. We all have things we can’t get to and your families and careers must be your priorities. May what you’re doing give you much happiness and Happy sales to you.

    Hey, chicks, you must do what you must do. Sometimes that means not doing what everyone else wants you to do. Thank you for your past herculean efforts and have fun concentrating on your own work this year!!!!

    Honestly, it’s kind of a relief. I love KLSS, but I too am overwhelmed with other stuff (mainly politics, in this crazy world we find ourselves in). It’s going to be hard enough just to find time to write this summer, much less follow the daily posts. Good for you for taking a break.
