One Response to Whereabouts

  1. I saw the announcement of your next twitter session and that led me here. Do English teachers ever Skype authors? As a classroom event, I mean, not a whole school event. We are all literacy advocates, can explain in various and very personal ways what reading and writing have meant to us, how we have been changed, sharpened, expanded by literature. We can also share our own writing methods, try to demystify novel writing, etc. We can’t begin to do what you do, of course. But maybe we could enhance it in some small way?

    I think most writers charge Skype fees, I do. But some (including me) will happily Skype free if there is no budget money available. Just a thought.
