This week I am celebrating the written word. As a reader, teacher and writer, words are an important part of my life.
I am currently at a workshop focused on writing for the children’s educational market. It is one of many workshops put on by the Highlights Foundation located on the founders’ family property in the Pocono Mountains outside of Honesdale, Pennsylvania. This has been a wonderful week led by two fabulous writers, Jan Fields and Paula Morrow. The other participants are creative and clever authors. I know we’ll be writing friends for years to come. The past five days have been inspiring, encouraging, and filled with words.
When I walked behind the barn I found myself in an amazing place – a word garden!
Words have been carved into stones which can be moved around to make sentences. I’ve wandered in the garden daily and have arranged my thoughts in a very concrete way.
Loving this cabin!
There’s so much to read around here. I’ve been enjoying the first edition of Highlights Magazine. It even includes a hidden picture page.
If you are interested in writing for children, you might want to consider spending time at one of the Highlights Foundation workshops which are held throughout the year.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Let me know what you are celebrating this week.
