Dr. Lisa’s Class
Tips from a Teaching Writer
In these pages I offer activities to keep you writing for a whole semester and beyond. Dr. Lisa’s Class includes some of my favorite lessons on creative writing craft, advice on being a writer, and ways of looking at children’s literature. It also links to guest posts and interviews from my November 2010 blog tour upon release of The Hole in the Wall.
