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!
The Craft of Children’s Magazines: A Hands-On Workshop
Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Driving Park Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library
1422 East Livingston Ave. – Columbus, Ohio 43205
It takes more than good content! In this three-hour, hands-on workshop, I’ll give you the tools you need to understand the world of children’s magazines.
I’ll take you behind the scenes at Cricket Media and demonstrate how an editorial team’s work relates to you. Then you’ll learn how to analyze a magazine in a hands-on exercise. Finally, you’ll have time to work on a submission based on current magazine needs.
You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to be successful in magazines and a great start to your own submission! Writers and illustrators at all levels are encouraged to attend!
The Aztec civilization has fascinated me ever since I read about the discovery of Tenochtitlán in National Geographic in the 70s, so I jumped at the chance to write about it for a series on world civilizations. (Although they wouldn’t have called themselves Aztecs–that was a European word.)
The July/August issue of Click is all about marsupials, and I wrote an article about how kangaroos hop. As I was writing, I discovered there were tons of kangaroo photos on the stock photo services we use, and they fit what I was describing, so I turned it into a photo essay.
