Ask a Question

Hello Open Book Toronto!

Well, it's been a blast blogging for you for the past month. Only two days left in my time here and I've been thinking. I've interviewed so many great writers over the past month, I thought I would share a little bit about myself for a change. So here's the deal: on the my last day as Writer in Residence (Saturday November 30th) I will answer all the questions anyone has ever asked me about writing, teaching, and mentoring. AND if you out there on the interweb have questions too - ask away. Just send them into here or use the CONTACT KIM area of my website. Simple.

Why is the sky purple?"

The more questions - the more interesting things get, so send them in. I'll answer anything - like why do anime theme songs in Japanese get so stuck in your head? I don't even speak Japanese yet I can sing them word for word.

The views expressed in the Writer-in-Residence blogs are those held by the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Open Book: Toronto.
