and on about how wonderful it was to be part of the:
Nevada SCBWI Mentor Program
(There should be Star Wars style music right now.)
The Mentor Program matches writers and illustrators with mentors who work with them for six full months. Amazing mentors who are authors, illustrators, and (this time) agents.
A few things you should know:
It's all about the revising.
If you don't want someone to tell you how to make your work better, or if you don't like revising, this isn't the program for you.
It's your chance to be fearless.
Your mentor will help you think about your project in new ways. Be prepared for the ride.
It makes you part of an amazing community.
Each mentor picks about three mentees, so there were over twenty of us in the Mentor Program. Those people and their mentors have become awesome friends.
So go to the Nevada SCBWI Mentor Program page. If you have any questions for me, let me know. I'd be happy to tell you more about my experience in the program.
