"Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book." - Stéphane Mallarmé
I am thrilled to announce that I was selected for a 3-month Writing With The Stars (WWTS) Mentorship with Penny Parker Klostermann! Penny is the author of There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight and the forthcoming A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale. Check out the official WWTS announcement here!
I am so honored to have this opportunity and owe it, in part, to Julie Hedlund's 12X12 Challenge. Julie introduced Critique Ninjas to the Challenge in 2016. Their role included reading manuscripts posted to the forum and providing feedback to aspiring writers. Every member of 12X12 is guaranteed Critique Ninja feedback on one manuscript. Last winter, I posted a manuscript and received feedback from Critique Ninja Penny Parker Klostermann, who was as enthusiastic about my story as I was and provided valuable feedback. A revised (overhauled) manuscript and 10 months later, this is the manuscript I submitted as part of my WWTS application to Penny. She remembered the manuscript, loved the revision, and picked ME!
