We are fortunate to have a team of accomplished and gifted faculty mentors – established and esteemed children’s lit authors who are well‐versed in all forms of picture book, middle grade and young adult fiction, as well as nonfiction.
Some of our mentors are full-time faculty members, but most rotate in and out of the program and participate on an as-needed basis, subject to their own availability.
