Some of us write in coffee shops, some of us write in closets, some of us write watching the birds…but one NH author, Lita Judge, sometimes gets a view of bobcats playing outside her studio. Where are you writing, today? What critters do you see?
From time to time, writers leave their solitary desks and actually connect! Kidlit603 organizes and hosts a New Words Night once a month. In this particular picture, writers gathered at Lita Judge‘s studio in scenic Peterborough, where they entertained one another with new stories.
This past week, Erin E. Moulton donated upwards of $2,000 to charities that support sexual violence survivors.

Kickass!
