Hey Kendra! So nice to hear from you. I'm actually about to start a new job as director of a project on conflict and sexual violence called "The War Against Women Project" for Gloria Steinem/the Women's Media Center. I'm still reachable on gmail...let's stay in touch.
I'm a published author and She Writes member. I came across a paragraph about you on the Write-On Con's Website and was wondering if you are accepting queries. I have written a YA Paranormal novel called Souls Entwined and thought you might like to take a look. Please let me know. Thanks.
Hi, Kendra! I just signed up for your YA class starting in January ... really looking forward to it! I don't know if you'd remember me, but we were paired up last year at Rutgers. I'm going to be working on that same manuscript (The Funeral Singer), which I'd shelved for a while. You were such a help as I tried to get "unstuck." I am really psyched to have a chance to get your input now as I move forward with it!
I have one quick question: I'm going to be on travel the day of the very first lecture (January 12) . I should be able to get online, but wondered how it works. Is it necessary to be "live" at the lectures or are those saved online for to be read at any time during the week?
Thanks, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. January will be here before we know it!
I would like to; really I would! Right now, though, my family and I are supposed to be going on vacation in about a week. A vacation, might I add, that we still have to pay for. In addition, we have the kids' school clothes and supplies to buy, etc. Never enough time or money, ya know! Always the same old story!! I'd really love it but I am stuck in that proverbial rut of putting everyone else's needs ahead of my own...but that's a Mom's story and I'm a Mom who loves every minute of it!!! Maybe one of these days, right!?!!
Hey, how was New Zealand??!!! Seems like eons ago. Thank you for the invite to She Writes. I am staying with my daughter Casey who just moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Met with a group of writers last night at Trattoria Dopo Teatro, and an agent and editor also joined us. This is one of many planned outings to NYC restaurants by SCBWI. I am learning how to smooze. For a Sicilian woman, it can be daunting, as I lead with my soul.
Just wanted to say hello and welcome to SHE WRITES! I have welcomed several playwrights in the last few days; hopefully you can find each other here. Also very active community of children's book authors...do you know Kathryn Gordon (formerly at S&S in marketing)? She is a friend and also here at SHE WRITES.
