Attention Biography and Aspiring Biography Writers!

img_facilityHighlights Foundations is sponsoring a workshop all about writing biographies with an outstanding faculty. Candy Fleming, with whom I’ve taken workshops at Highlights, has written several award-winning biographies. Carolyn Yoder, editor of Calkins Creek, the American history imprint of Boyds Mills Press, applies her editorial leadership to consistently produce award-winning biographies. (Remember Shelley Sommer’s Hammerin’ Hank Greenberg, which won a Sydney Taylor Silver Award.) I’ve taken many, many workshops with Carolyn in the past, including biography.

If you want to hone your skills in writing biography for kids or aspire to write biography, I seriously urge you to attend this workshop. Join Candy, Carolyn, and award-winning author Robert Burleigh on September 15-18, 2013 at The Barn, in northeastern Pennsylvania. For more details, please visit:

    They always run amazing workshops; I’m still referring to notes from their presentations at 2009 Chautauqua.
