On June 28, we discussed themes, and teens swapped manuscripts and did some peer-editing. See video 13 (How to Find a Theme by D4Darius) on Molly’s TEENS Publish playlist. We also talked about teen authors, and an example was S. E. Hinton, who was a teenager when she wrote The Outsiders. See video 16 on the playlist for an interview with S. E. Hinton. You may want to also check out some of the other videos on that same playlist if you want help with things such as punctuating dialogue, using characterization, using comedy, and using dramatic irony. We will not be meeting next week (Wed., July 5). Our next meeting will be on July 12, which will be the last meeting before writers send their manuscripts to editors on July 19.
