Weekly Reader's Writing Magazine

I'm happy to announce that my article about creating a sense of place, "A Whole New World," is in this month's issue of Weekly Reader's Writing magazine, an excellent tool for young writers edited by the brilliant Sandhya Nankani. Check out the magazine's writing contest for teens called Take Me Away (.pdf download), scheduled to be judged by Ursula K. Le Guin. Also featured and interviewed in the October issue of Writing are two of my favorite authors, Isabel Allende and Gail Carson Levine, author of the new book Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly.
