PASCO, WA - What started with 70 students and seven authors, the Cavalcade of Authors workshop at Columbia Basin College  now boasts over 1,000 students with 16 authors!

The 6th annual workshop is open to six districts throughout the region for middle school and high school students (grades 6 to 12).

Moving from room to room, students hear from different young adult authors about how they stay inspired to write and how they brainstorm ideas.

"The lessons that kids come back with is 'I can do it too' and that they can persevere and get through those tough times when they're rejected, that they keep pushing because it's something that they love and they want to do it," says Michelle Lane, the founder of the event.  "So many kids do walk away truly inspired and thinking 'yes! I can do that too!'"

Lane also says that some authors are already booked for next year!

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. >>
