Deborah Reber, author of Chill (S&S), emailed me asking to post about this opportunity for teen writers to get published.
From the site:
- Do you love to journal or blog?
- Is writing your passion?
- Do you have an important real-life story to tell?
- Do you dream of being a published author?
- Are you a girl between 13 - 19 years old?
If I just described you, then read on! This new project is about giving a voice to young writers with important things to say. It's for teens who are interested in writing a memoir (yes, that’s right…a whole book) about your true-life story.From Deborah Reber's email to me:
The series is being created by HCI Books (Health Communications, Inc.), who publishes all the Chicken Soup books, etc. They hired me as the editorial director, so my job is finding the writers and working with them to create and edit their book. The first three books will be coming out in Fall 2009, with additional titles coming out every six months.
