Yesterday I met with a reading/writing group at Boston Latin; my academic neighbor, right next door to Simmons College. It was a great mix of students ranging from 8th grade to high school seniors, and all were incredibly engaged and enthusiastic about writing, which was wonderful. It’s fun for me to talk to the next generation of writers. I hope that my tales of writing and re-writing will encourage them in their endeavors, and not scare them off. Many thanks to Kerry, Sahar, Chelsea, Nora, Zarina, and all others present, and an extra big thank you for Megan who invited me to visit, and brought brownies. I took this cute photo but sadly, such is my photographic talent, I didn’t manage to get all of the lovely ladies in the frame…oops. I’ll be more careful next time.
