Hi! I'm Mark. I'm terrible with introductions, so bear with me.
Basically, Amy (*who butts in here* and is going to be posting in purple) and I wanted this blog to be a teen writers community of sorts. Of course, there's like seven hundred of those out there already, so we wanted this to be a little different.
Among other things, we plan on having contests, giveaways, critiques, and author interviews. If you're traditionally/self published/soon to be, please contact us! We'd love to feature you here.
The interesting dynamic in this blog is the perspective. Amy is agented and I am not (yet!). Because of this, Amy can post all about going on submission/getting an editor/becoming rich and famous (Ha! No), while I'm right there with most of you in the anxiety-inducing process of querying.
Also, we'd love to hear any suggestions you guys have. We're starting out, essentially, with nothing more than a jumble of ideas. If you want to see a particular kind of blog post, please, please comment. This blog is for all of you teen writers to leave your rants and raves on it, because we know how hard it is to be trying to balance school and sports and extracurricular activities with writing a novel.
In short, we want to hear from you guys. We are also young adults writing for young adults, so we'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment with a suggestion of a certain kind of post or a certain author you want us to try to get for an interview. Thanks so much!
