How fun is this? I got to join some fellow authors at a corporate spelling bee to raise money for literacy!

I’d never been to a corporate spelling bee, and this experience was awesome. Participants raised money for The Literary Council of Greater Waukesha and even dressed the part for the literary theme of “Where the Wild Things Spell.”

Authors from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators acted as judges to the very impressive spellers. The winning word: VOCIFERANCE, meaning “noisy.” The “ance” starts with an A, not an E, folks!

Here’s hoping we can do it again soon! 🙂
