EdYOUfest

Ne pouvant pas me rendre à EdYOufest, Madeleine Zapata-Boxberger a gentiment proposé de présenter quelques uns de mes projets. Voici le diaporama qu'elle utilisera en avant-première :)

Cyane’s visit. By Kostia

Sometimes, you have great opportunities which are offered to you and you really don't want to let those pass. I believe that our class with the French author Cyane was one of those great moments you never forget in your life. He is a great writer and is a passionate man and he believes in what he does and that is something great to see when you're a 15-year-old teenager. At first,I thought that the project was simply translating a book but once he explained to us what the purpose of this project really was, I was shocked.… Visit the author's original post

Skype Interview of David ARENSTAM, American author. By Louise.

On February 28, our class had a Skype interview with novel author David Arenstam. This American writer started by introducing himself to us. David Arenstam is a Massachusetts-born author, he started off his professional life by creating his own data processing company, but soon abandoned that job for something he had dreamed of for years: teaching English literature and writing. This quick presentation was followed by getting to know more about his book than we knew from the extract we had read.… Visit the author's original post

This article explains what this forum is about.

Deek Rhew: guest writer and future guest speaker!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for inviting me onto your blog, Marie!

Today, we are talking about the wild and crazy ride of getting from "It was a dark and stormy night..." to "Yaaaay! You're officially published." There was an article I read by Dave Barry who talked about a flight he took to California. Everyone boarded and while they were waiting to take off, he randomly started asking people how much they paid for their ticket. The answer was not surprising: No one on that flight paid the same fare.… Visit the author's original post

Kai Strand: some thoughts about the first Skype interview (by some of my students)

Today, some students wrote a post in honor of Kai Strand who did the first Skype interview with them.
Thanbk you so much to them and to Kai!

Last Thursday, the 10th grade OIB class got to know the American writer Kai Strand whom they met during a Skype interview. It was a neat opportunity because most of us had never done a Skype interview before with a writer. Kai Strand was very nice to us and answered all our questions in great detail.… Visit the author's original post

New guest writer! Eric Price will be my students’ next guest speaker!

It is a great honor to share this post with you! Thank you Eric for being such a wonderful person!


My interest in writing books developed around the same time I developed an interest in reading them. As a child, few things interested me less than reading. But around the time I started 7th grade, a few unrelated events happened to change my mind and to begin shaping me into the person I am today.
First, one of my friends started reading Stephen King books.… Visit the author's original post

New Guest Writer! Erin Rhew, author of The Fulfillment series

Before being interviewed by my students on Skype, Erin Rhew has just shared her huest writer's post!
Thank you so much Erin!
Here is her website.


Thanks so much for hosting me today, Marie!!

Things I Didn’t Know About Being A Writer

I think most new writers start out a bit naïve about the process. When you look around, books just seem to sell. A big named author releases a new novel, and BOOM, it’s a bestseller. No one ever mentions all the behind-the-scenes mayhem that contributes to that bestseller or how many rejections that person received before he or she hit it big.… Visit the author's original post

Guest Writer: Cathi Unsworth, author of Weirdo

I met Cathi Unsworth at Impressions d'Europe, a literary festival, in Nantes last year and asked her if she would like to join a school project with international section students. She immediately accepetd and as we were both very busy last year, everything is starting this school year!

Cathi Unsworth is a novelist, writer and editor who lives and works in London. She began her career on the legendary music weekly Sounds at the age of 19 and has worked as a writer and editor for many other music, film and arts magazines since, including Bizarre, Melody Maker, Mojo, Uncut, Volume and Deadline.… Visit the author's original post

I often say that my journey as a writer began at a very sad time in my life, shortly after my 16-year-old sister, Kylene, unexpectedly passed away.… Visit the author's original post
