WriteonCon, the amazing online conference for PB, MG, and YA authors, agents, and editors is ending in about two hours. These past three days have been a whirlwind of the glued-to-my-computer type of activities.
I even forgot to eat a couple of times. I completely forgot about school.
My family just giggles when I say, “I can’t talk now, I’ve got an online conference going on!”
I’ve met so many wonderful writers, so many of them teachers. It seems a shame to lose that camaraderie after the conference. Once we all head back to the classrooms, we’ll get so busy that writing might get moved to the back burner.
So, to encourage teachers who write to keep in touch, keep us accountable, and keep supporting one another, I’m starting a #teacherwriter hashtag on Twitter. If you write and teach, or if you love someone who does, or if you’re just curious and want to lurk, please join.
I’m on Twitter most school day mornings as @suzannelilly between 4 & 6 am PST. I’ll check in to see if anyone from the #teacherwriter group is on and chat. Of course, anyone can use the hashtag anytime. That’s just my schedule.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for you!
