LoonSong, 2017, a retreat for children’s and young-adult writers.
We woke every morning to inspiration
beside a lake, deep in a forest, in the wilderness of northern Minnesota.
A place where Debby invited us into her dream.
It was a time of multilayered, multifaceted writer talk.
It was a time of long walks,
of pontoon rides,
of solitary paddles.
It was a time to sit alone and dream.
Lectures by some of the most exciting people in our field.
Panel discussions that morphed into whole-group conversations.
one-on-one consultations with an editor,
or with an agent.
And finally sad farewells.
