Jill Williamson not only teaches writing, she writes wonderful YA books (I'm in the middle of Replication right now, and it's excellent). Starting in April she'll be blogging here regularly. I'm excited partially because I know I'm going to learn a ton.
The reason we're waiting until April is Jill is setting out on a 4 city book tour, which is incredibly awesome. If you live by Austin, Atlanta, Jacksonville, or Nashville, be sure to check out the details.
Jill is a reader of everything, but a writer of fantasy and sci-fi. While she'll be talking about all kinds of writing stuff, she'll also be able to answer questions you have pertaining to those genres. If you have questions you'd like to see her answer, click here to contact her, and just be sure to specify you're from Go Teen Writers.
The other new member of the Go Teen Writers team is Roseanna White, a lady of many hats. While she does write wonderful historicals, she's also the acquisitions editor for a small press, WhiteFire who publishes authors like Dina Sleiman, Sandi Rog, and Christine Lindsay. Do you have questions you'd like to ask an editor? Do you wonder what makes a manuscript sparkle? What makes it stand out? Or do you wonder what editors look for in pitches, what the acquisitions process is like, or how to make a good impression? You can ask Roseanna your questions, and she'll answer them for you.
And Rachel Coker will continue to post monthly here on Go Teen Writers, giving us insights from her unique vantage point as a published teenager. If you have questions for Rachel, you can email her at REC804(at)hotmail.com
With a line up like that, I'm not exactly sure why you would have writing questions for me, but if you do you can always reach me here.
Tomorrow I'll be talking about the balance of dialogue and prose, and later this week I should be able to announce the winner's of the 100-word free write contest.
Enjoy your Tuesday!
