Martin, 10th grader, wants to share his views on our latest Skype interview:
On May 31, we had a Skype interview with two American authors, Erin and Deek RHEW, after having analyzed Erin’s novel’s incipit, an excerpt from “The Prophecy”. This cute couple could be described as funny, geeky, talented and beautiful, leading to one of the most enjoyable interviews of this year, even though the whole class had to overcome several technical problems!
But after a while, we managed to establish this extremely pleasant moment of learning.
The class was allowed to ask several questions about their jobs, their art and their daily lives. A curious student asked what their inspirations were, and while she admitted to be a Shakespeare’s fan, he confessed that he preferred Stephen King. They both write different genres, it appeared to the class that they were some kind of a “ying and yang” couple, fusional thanks to their differences, and thus an amazing group of writers!
And here is Erin and Deek's feedback!
Deek and I were so pleased to have the opportunity to speak to Marie and her students via Skype to discuss our books--The Fulfillment Series and 122 Rules--as well as literature and writing. Throughout the whole process, Marie has been warm and open and such a pleasure to work with. And during our Skype call, her students asked intelligent, informed questions about us and our writing process. It was our great honor to participate in this amazing, international program with all of them.
Well, thank YOU for making my students dream!!!
