Creating a year’s worth of magazines takes a lot of love, hard work, and planning. I usually telecommute, but once a year I travel to the Cricket Media editorial offices to participate in planning the ASK issues for the next year. The ASK team spends the day talking about what we’d like to see in next year’s issues: everybody comes with their top ten, and then we discuss until we have a consensus. It’s one of my favorite times of the year!
February was all about food at the Cricket Media magazines! ASK took a look at how the ancient Maya fed their empire, and I wrote about Cerén, a Maya farming village. For Click’s five-year-old readers, I described what goes into making the food we eat for lunch.
All nine of Cricket Media’s magazines were awarded Parents’ Choice Gold Awards this year! So proud to do my part as a contributing editor for Click, ASK, and Muse!
I attempted to explain time zones in this month’s issue of Click…
Being able to do interviews in cool places is one of the best parts of my job…like this visit to Newport Aquarium that I wrote about for September’s Click. (And Tom Uhlman did the great photos.)
September was a busy month! I had articles in ASK and Muse!
