Southwestern Virginia Reading Council

I was a guest today at the Southwestern Virginia Reading Council Fall Conference in Abingdon. My session, Taking Memories, Making Tales talked about how to use memories to help children with writing assignments, as well as the importance of teaching our children the traditions of Appalachia. I also talked about using my memories of growing up in Appalachia and writing Granny Gathers. The forty or so people who were in my session were great, with good discussions. Thanks so much for having me, SWRC!

  1. That sounds like a wonderful session. Maybe you can share some tips with my son to jump start him writing. we have the hardest times getting him comfortable enough to do his writing assignments. He thinks he can’t write.
