Thank you all for sending your bios. Before the June 10 meeting, please watch the “What makes a hero?” video by Matthew Winkler and the Teens Publish: Protagonist video by Molly Blaisdell. Molly also created a TEENS Publish prewriting video which you should have seen before the first meeting. You can find additional useful videos on Molly’s TEENS Publish playlist on Yahoo. For June 10, you should have 500 words that can be discussed during the critique part of the meeting. If you don’t already have a copy, please see a copy of the critique guidelines (Word version, pdf version). Also, just as a reminder, Romy Natalia Goldberg will be talking about characters for the first part of the June 10 meeting. Natalia is the current regional advisor (RA) of Brazos Valley SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators), and she has helped with TEENS Publish before. Molly will be joining us closer to the end of the June 10 meeting to talk about character pitfalls. I emailed Zoom meeting information to people, so if you didn’t get a Zoom link (or meeting ID and password), please email me and I’ll send it to you again.
