I had a great time at the Kateri Day Camp in Morganville, NJ, earlier this month. I did two creative writing sessions. The first was for a group of 9-yr-old girls, in which we worked together to make up a rather fun sequel idea for Disney's Frozen.
The following week, I did a similar workshop for the boys, most of whom were twelve or older. They had a hard time agreeing on which movie sequel to work on (we ended up doing a zombie apocalypse set in a big city), but we managed to put something together.
I'm popping back there on Monday to pick up the entries for a story contest I set up. I've already read a couple of them. They're very good.
As for upcoming events, I've a few things booked and several more in the pipeline, but what with one thing and another, I've eased back a lot this year:
