Nick Bantock, author of the Griffin & Sabine series says, "If you want to direct a young soul toward the pleasures of letter writing, then Write Back Soon! is the book for you...and them." Write Back Soon! includes Letter Writing Lead-ins and postcard-sized prompts to inspire all ages to write from the heart. It also includes notes to the reader from Neil Gaiman, Ruth Ozeki, Natalie Goldberg, Gary Snyder, Jane Hirshfield, Wendy Mass, and many others. Refreshments and postcards served!

Karen Benke has inspired children and even a few adults in the art of creative writing for over twenty years as a Poet in the Schools, writing coach, and visiting author.  She specializes in leading on-the-spot creative writing workshops and has been known to get even the most reluctant writer to reach for a pen.  Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies and national literary journals (Ploughshares, Rattle, Hawaii Pacific Review, Poetry Daily) and her books have been featured in FamilyFun magazine, The San Francisco Book Review, Kids' Book Review and elsewhere.  The recipient of two teaching grants from Poets & Writers and residencies from Djerassi Resident Artists Program and Hedgebrook, she runs The Writers Nest and lives north of the Golden Gate Bridge with her teenage son, magic cat Clive, and rescue dog Rasco Roon.
