I’m very excited to be a part of this partnership between the Oregon Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and Powells Books store.
The program came about because Oregon authors and Powells share a common goal in reaching out to young writers and encouraging a bookstore going habit in families. Together we’ve created the League of Exceptional Writers, a free mentoring program which meets every second Saturday at 2pm from October to May. Each month a different author or illustrator meets with avid writers ages 8-18 for candid conversation about working in the book world, prompts and exercises to work on, and plenty of time for questions.
League meetings are held at the Cedar Hills Crossing Powells where the parking is free and there’s lots of room to spread out and get some real writing work done
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005 (map/directions)
Here is the poster for this year’s League of Exceptional Writer meetings. And below it is a black and white flyer easy to copy for inclusion in a school or library newsletter.
