It’s time for a blogging hiatus. I’m just a little less than four weeks from my workshop Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers in Utah. It sounds like plenty of time, but in my world we’re down to hours. I’m buckling down. I want to use every spare moment (of which there are few) for polishing my work so I can get the most out of the workshop time.

I love reading all your blogs. It gives me connection, inspiration, validation, or sometimes just a laugh! (Very important!)

Even though I won’t be blogging or reading blogs for the next few weeks, I am excited to come back and tell you all about the workshops and speakers. Brandon Mull, author of the Fablehaven series, will be teaching my morning workshop. The afternoons are filled with speakers and time to mingle with other authors, editors, and agents.

I’m looking forward to an amazing experience! I’ll be back June 18th!


  1. Yay, Liesl! Good luck with this final push. And there’s still a (very outside) chance that I’ll see you there:)

  2. Looks like I won’t be able to make it this year after all. Have a great time, though, Liesl! I look forward to hearing all about it from you:)
