TeenWriter Tuesday: 5 Ways to Make Career Connections


Go Teen Writers!

If you are not already familiar with the website Go Teen Writers,  I’d like to introduce you. GoTeenWriters offers honesty, encouragement and community to teens who want to be published.

If you want to meet other teens who love writing and stories just like you do, consider joining the Go Teen Writers Community Facebook group. It’s a private group where members talk about their stories, help critique writing, and encourage each other. If you’re interested in joining, email the admins at: goteenwriterscommunity(at)gmail.com

You can also subscribe to their monthly(ish) newsletter here. I promise it’s worthwhile.

How to Make Connections

Rachelle Rea Cobb is a homeschool grad. She wrote the Steadfast Love series during her college years and, five months after she graduated, signed a three-book deal with her dream publisher, WhiteFire. In this July 25, 2016, post on GTW, Rachelle discusses How to Make Connections and Boost Your Career. It’s a business strategy–and you want to have a career in the business of writing, right?

P.S. If you’re in the Houston-Bay Area on Thursday night, I’ll be presenting a workshop on The Short of It — Synopsis, High Concept, Query, BlurbFitting a 400-page manuscript into one page, one paragraph, one sentence. It can be done! The workshop is being hosted by Bay Area Writers League (B.A.W.L.), at the Clear Lake Park building on NASA Rd. One, at 7 pm.
