Professional Education







“This experience has been one of a kind. My mind is spinning with thoughts about my own work and the happiness I feel for having this experience…I’ve had the fortune of working with librarians, graduate students, academics and professional writers in an intimate forum to share the love of books written for adolescent readers. The pastiche of author insight with teacher practice has been absolutely amazing.”

Bryan Ripley Crandall, attendee of LSU Young Adult Literature Conference


“Life and career changing experience. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity!”
