What you'll find on this page: workshop docket, conference docket, absence/tardy tally, blog post tally, and a corral of submission/event dates (and any other deets I deem "important"). It's a good page to visit!

**SUBMISSIONS: First submission due - Fri. March 9. Second submission due - Fri. April 27. The submission is to be a reasonably polished five
page (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1" margins) writing
sample (that is, an excerpt from an MG or YA short story or novel). Submissions should be e-mailed to email@example.com.
**PUBLIC READING: TBD. Students are to prepare 5 minutes (3 pages) of work
ostensibly geared toward the MG or YA demographic. Participation
required. Open to family and friends.
**MARATHON READING: TBD. Naturally, you are only required to attend during your regularly scheduled class period.
**THE ALL AGES SHOW: RU's ANNUAL KID LIT CONFERENCE: TBD
INSIDE THE WRITERS HOUSE: Candid Conversations with Acclaimed Authors. Sessions meet in the Plangere Culture Lab, Murray Hall 302, and occur at a variety of times. Click HERE for more info. Students must attend a minimum of THREE sessions (TWO sessions are included during your regular class period; that means you must seek out a third session convenient to your schedule). Additional attendance (beyond the three) will serve as extra credit.
X CREDIT: Again, any IWH session above the required three (two of which occur during your class period) counts as an extra credit. Bring friends to any of our public events and get extra credit (the more friends, the more credit). Attend an event beyond your class period (that is, come early or stay late) and get extra credit (the longer, the more credit).
