Proof that We Actually Exist

2016 Mills College 08

AF and I met up the other day at our grad school alma mater, Mills College, to speak to the graduate and undergraduate writers in Kathryn Reiss’s YA writing course. It was a lot of fun, but it was an afternoon class, and it was a fairly warm afternoon. We were FAR more lively/hopped up on caffeine than the students, and I think we might have scared them the tiniest little bit. Ah, well.
There’s nothing like doing a classroom visit with someone else! Our ideas sparked off of each other, and I think we were pretty much quadruple the entertainment for the money. Photographers came by, too, which … is also kind of funny; we’re apparently going to be part of the school’s PR for “Authors Occasionally Come And Visit! Try Our School!” It’s all good, though; we’re happy to help, and hope others are encouraged to get their MFA or at least take a few writing classes.
Stay tuned for more random reviews, bits and pieces of this and that, and eventually another tandem review. When we can settle on a book…
