I visited Mercersburg Elementary School yesterday as their 2014 Visiting Author. The kids and I had an amazing time! I’m hoping to visit schools like this more often. So much fun!
Hey there, come see me at www.amandahartmiller.com. We'll talk about writing, teaching writing, raising kids, and writing for kids. See ya there!

That is awesome. Must have been a fun experience. I am impressed that they knew about rising action, climax, and resolution. I feel that there are plenty of older kids, and adults, who have little to no understanding of such things. Hopefully it sticks with these kids and hopefully you helped make that possible! Congratulations!

Thanks, John! Yes, it was a lot of fun. I think you’d be good at something like this, too.

what cool experience. one that they, and you, will never forget. when children meet the actual writer/creator of something it makes it all so much more real for them and opens all sorts of possibilities –

Thanks, Beth! Yes, the kids were great. They had impressive questions; even the K and 1st graders were very “with it.”
