The literacy gods smiled on me the day I met Gretchen Bernabei. If you’ve met her, you understand: her energy is contagious. Gretchen is not only a master of writing instruction, but also a dynamic performer and responsive communicator — at a Bernabei workshop, no one is bored.
I had the opportunity this week to spend two days learning from Gretchen in Richardson, Texas. Check out the conversation we had on writing instruction, the demystification of authors, and the upcoming release of her new book, Text Structures from Fairy Tales.
