Bayou Writers Group Conference Speaker - Editor

I've always had an interest in writing for kids. I collect ideas and tuck them away just like I do pretty candles, coasters and my depression glass. I'll use them someday, I think. I guess it's time to dig out those ideas and 'use them' too. I'm excited that we have Paula Murphey coming to our Bayou Writers Group conference. This will be an excellent opportunity for all of us.

Paula Murphey is senior editor for Boys’ Life magazine, the national publication for the Boy Scouts of America. After graduating with an M.A. in English from the University of Texas at Tyler, Paula first tried her hand at teaching and then writing/editing in the advertising industry before landing in the journalism world.

Boys' Life magazine is a general-interest magazine published monthly in three demographic editions for boys from first grade through high school. Many stories and articles in Boys' Life reflect the program themes of Cub Scouting and program features of Boy Scouting.

The mission of Boys' Life magazine is to entertain and educate America's youth and to open their eyes to the joyous world of reading. This is accomplished through a proven mix of news, nature, sports, history, fiction, science, comics, and Scouting. Check out their website HERE.
