I’m excited to announce a new project for summer, 2016. Staring in June, I will mentor four Seattle-based youth novelists through a program called The Seattle Youth Novelist Project. Through a series of meetings in-person or online, I will give young writers individual feedback on their work. Then, in the fall, the writers will present a public reading of their work. The project is free and participants will be paid for their performances! The project is supported by a grant from The City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. Applications are due May 30,2016.
