Talking to Kids About Writing
The kids know me, I've helped at parties, so there won't be a formal need for introduction. I'll feel most comfortable pulling up a piece of
floor with them, so there's that. I won't have to dress up. I may even go without make-up.
But talking literary terms and explaining my genre or giving them my resume is out.
What do I say? What do I ask? What do I tell them about myself? How do I show my passion, and encourage them with a love for words and story?
I know many of you have experience with this kind of thing, and I'm looking for guidance.
What are your pointers?
