I mentioned earlier that the members of my MiG Writers critique group have all posted their work goals for the coming year: here's the post. Thanks to Christy Farley (whose YA novel GILDED debuts this November) for putting this post together!
One of the reasons I'm so looking forward to the SCBWI Winter Conference in NYC later this month is because it'll be the first time that all the members of MiG Writers will be meeting in person!
You can find out more about us on our blog: http://migwriters.blogspot.com.
As much as I enjoy e-mail and online message boards, there's nothing like being able to hear a person's voice and seeing their face while you're chatting. So it was exciting for me to finally be able to "meet" my MiG writer friend, Christina Farley, via Google+ Chat this afternoon. SO much fun!!
Christy posts about kidlit/YA in her Chocolate For Inspiration blog -- what a great blog title. :-) Christy's one of the most productive writers I know, so i was quizzing her about how she does it, and also got some classroom presentation advice.
And she has some VERY EXCITING book news which she hopes to able to share publicly very, very soon...
As I mentioned earlier, my MiGwriters group is posting a series of interviews with our agents all this week.
Up today: Ginger Knowlton of Curtis Brown (MY agent, woohoo!)
Today's MiGwriters blog interview is with Andrea Cascardi of Translatlantic Literary Agency.
Tomorrow: my agent, Ginger Knowlton of Curtis Brown!
One of my MiGwriter critique partners, Christina Farley, came up with a great idea: to interview our literary agents for our blog. So starting next Monday, we'll be posting info and interviews with our agents from Transatlantic, Curtis Brown, JenniferDeChiara and Jennifer Lyons literary agencies.
See the MiGwriters blog and please do "Like" the MiGwriters Facebook Page for updates.
I'm pleased to announce that my critique group, MiG Writers, is offering a 10-page critique as part of our celebration of our new digs at Blogspot. You can find the rules here (please enter over on the MiG Writers site, not in Inkygirl, thanks).
I've started a blog series over on the MiG Writers blog about writers and voice, for those interested. Today's post:
Stephen Pressfield & the Fabrication of Voice
So my writing critique group, MiG Writers, made me cry this morning. Just recently one of them asked me what my favorite picture book and favorite middle grade book was. I told them heck, that's a hard question but if I had to choose, here's what I'd choose.
Well, this morning I logged into my e-mail to find the following video and blog posting:
Feeling very, very lucky to have found this group of women. We've all become friends in addition to critique partners, supporting each other in so much more than just our writing projects.
Anyway, please do join the party over on the MiG Writers blog. :-)
And to my fellow MiG Writers: THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
