I'm about to head off to Hollins University in Virginia, where I'll be the writer-in-residence at the excellent Children's Book Writing & Illustrating M.F.A. program this year. I feel quite honored to be joining an extraordinary faculty of writers, artists, and academics to discuss the practice of this important art form with M.F.A. students.
I'll be off-line while I travel and settle in, and then Myth & Moor will resume from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia (where Annie Dillard wrote Pilgrim at Tinker Creek) -- so please check back in a week or so.
"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving." - Terry Pratchett (A Hat Full of Sky)
