Few and mighty. The first WAY conference has fanned a flame of writers. That’s the hope anyway. From learning characterization, villainization and a few giggles over silly analogies, Saturday’s first Way conference was a success.
The staff, faculty and guest panel are here for the teens to continue the progress. Please use the blog and the Facebook page to post your newest and renewed works. Posts will be anonymous.
Need new a resource? Love to read? Need a break from your manuscript? On Tuesdays, check out new interviews with YA authors and win books at Teens of Today on Patti’s Writing for All Ages.
And now we have a challenge!
National Novel Writing Month happens every November! It’s a fun, seat-of-your-pants writing event where the challenge is to complete an entire novel in just 30 days. For one month, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create!
That means participants begin writing November 1 and must finish by midnight, November 30. The word-count goal for our adult program is 50,000 words, but the Young Writers Program (YWP) allows 17-and-under participants to set reasonable, yet challenging, individual word-count goals.
Are you serious? Then join some of the faculty in NaNoWriMo. Check it out here.
