The Catalyzing Moment – an Interview with Allison & Rebekah

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 9.07.50 PMWe owe a lot to Tom Newkirk. Actually, we owe almost everything to Tom Newkirk. This brilliant man has been a leader in our fields for decades, but one cold morning in Boston 2 1/2 years ago he spoke directly to Allison and me through a crowded room. And everything changed.

We talk about this “catalyzing moment” over on the Heinemann blog today — a moment that moved us to tears, that led us to start a blog, and, ultimately, to write Writing With Mentors. A moment for which we will be forever grateful.
