Carmela's E-Newsletter: Fall 2014
October 21, 2014Hello and happy fall! This month on our TeachingAuthors blog we're celebrating the publication of my article "Writing for Boys (and other 'Reluctant Readers')" in the 2015 Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market (Writer's Digest Books). One lucky reader will win a copy of this indispensable resource. For details, check out my latest blog post, in which I also share the #1 tip from the four award-winning authors I interviewed for the article, along with links to resources for reaching reluctant readers.
