Every week or so, I'll be sharing new art, writing and interesting links plus info about creativity challenges and activities for young artists and writers. Other topics include books I love, free resources for teachers and librarians, what I'm learning about writing and illustrating for young people, creativity, and finding one's joy. Plus I will have GIVEAWAYS and special offers exclusively for my newsletter subscribers, and free Skypevisit offerings will be made via the newsletter first.
