I’m going to be in the greater Chicago area Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of next week (the 3rd through 5th of March) to pass out promotional materials for the 2015 Chapter One Young Writers Conference. If you work at a school, library, book store, community center, coffee shop, etc.–and would be interested in having me drop by to put up flyers, talk to your class about the benefits of attending a writing conference, or anything else–feel free to email your request between now and then to chapteroneconference@aol.com and I’ll do my best to work you into the schedule!

Can’t wait to see you and show off our spiffy new flyers!
