Hi , my name is Deb Allard. I'm a Christian who enjoys writing for and about children.
I've been writing approximately 4 years. I like to study the craft of writing. I'm currently taking a children's literature course through the Institute of Children's Literature. I'm also a Christian.
Mostly children's fiction, although I am considering nonfiction.
Haven't been published yet, although I had my work considered by an editorial board for 6 months, and then it was declined. Currently a publisher is considering another piece. I'm praying about that.
Yes, I've attended almost all the SCBWI-MI writer's conferences in the last two years. I only missed the one in Northern MI. last year.
I would like to be published. I would like to grow in the craft of writing (I do study writing alot). I enjoy being in the company of other writers.
Such a wonderful group of accomplished and encouraging writers. I feel humbled and blessed to be included. Thank you.
Hi Debbie! Welcome back to the Mitten :). Yes, we are planning to meet Tuesday, 9-17, at 1:00 pm. Tim usually posts it, but I will figure it out and add our meeting too. Looking forward to seeing you again. Congratulations on winning the conference scholarship! I had a feeling you would win.
Yes, that's fine, Debbie. Just claim your spots on the Meetup site and then you can pay me when I see you next. Thanks!
It looks like you just wrote to me. Yea!
Yes, your friend is welcome to attend. I know the price will be a bit less, so let me get that for you tomorrow. Regarding the schedule, we are still hammering that out, but I will send it out as soon as it's done.
Regarding food, are you allergic to anything? We could get you something special if needed.
Yes, we are still meeting. I was thinking about cancelling it, but heard from another looking forward to it, so don't take any risks if it's too bad where you are.
All the information is on the meetup site post for this meeting. Please check it out so you are informed of what we will be doing. The address is 100 Pine Street, Zeeland, 49464.
Absolutely, Debbie! This will be our first meeting together at City on a Hill, so we will be glad to have you come. Blessings!
