Auction Donor: Alison Green Myers writes young adult novels, the scarier the better. While my voice pleases the young adult crowd, my eye wanders to picture book design in my studies and instruction. I am a National Writing Fellow and an ARA for Eastern Pennsylvania’s chapter of SCBWI. I also work with the Highlights Foundation to plan and facilitate writers’ workshops at their Northeastern Pennsylvania retreat center and I contribute regularly to the Foundation's blog.
