YOUNG EDITORS PROJECT
I'm excited to announce that I am now part of the Young Editors Project! The Young Editors Project is an initiative run by The Hawkins Projects. YEP serves to pair up children in schools with authors and publishers so young people can be part of the editorial process and help make the book the best it can be.
For example, if an author is struggling with what feels "authentic" for a ten-year-old, the author can be paired up with a class consisting of ten-year-old children and receive feedback on their novel. In this way, students become editors and can critically approach the literature they are faced with in their daily lives while authors can learn and implement the feedback received.

I'm so excited to do this and can't wait to update you guys on what's happening!
Lots of love,
