Author in Residence Beth Kephart: A Fond Farewell

We bid so long to our first Author-in-Residence (AIR), Beth Kephart, last night in a fun and fast-paced chat full of advice and dancing and admiration! Read the transcript here if you missed it.

Her final challenge was Writing From Life, and Beth has chosen two writers to mention in her blog as winners--Charlotte and Carly. Congratulations, C and C! Visit Beth's blog to read their lovely words.

And stay tuned for more wisdom from our next AIR, the fabulous Elizabeth Scott!

I am so sorry I missed the chat, I still haven't really worked out who everything is run yet. :(
