Speaker Spotlight: Jean Matthew Hall’s Workshop “Writing from Childhood Memories”

Jean Matthew Hall, an elementary school educator and administrator and former director of Write2Ignite Conference, is represented by Cyle Young of Hartline Literary Agency.

She recently signed with Little Lamb Books to publish a series of four picture books about God’s creation during the four seasons of the year.

Jean’s focus as a writer is “listen[ing] to the hearts of teachers, children, and parents of almost every age” and writing stories that “communicate values and truths about God, His world, and His Word.”

In her workshop “Writing from Childhood Memories,” Jean will explore writing children’s (and young adults’) stories based on childhood memories. She will discuss pluses and minuses and the problems with using memories that are one or two generations removed from children today. This session includes hands-on projects to probe writers’ memories and translate those memories into contemporary stories.
