Writer's Bloc Welcomes Erin Dealey in June

The Publishing World is Wild! Find out how Erin Dealey navigated her way into traditional publishing at 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 7, at the Placerville Library, 345 Fair Lane.
 
Erin Dealey writes in many genres, from board books to YA. Her picture books have taken her to school visits as far south as Brazil and as far north as Tok, Alaska. A former SCBWI co-Regional Advisor for the Califronia North/Central region, Dealey is an experienced K-12 Language Arts/ theater teacher, actor, and motivational speaker. In the summer, she heads the theater department of Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp. As a member of the Area 3 Writing Project (UCDavis), she leads writing workshops for teachers and students of all ages. She has presented at conferences for reading associations, school library associations, the California Kindergarten Conference, and SCBWI.
