Excuse me while I brag on Linda Phillips, a young adult novelist and my BFF.
The Lord brought us together 20 years ago when the regional advisor of the SCBWI-Charlotte chapter suggested we put together a conference. Linda and I had never even met! But it turns out, that individual was right. Linda and I planned and ran a conference–and then became writing buddies, walking buddies, and praying friends. We’ve exchanged manuscripts, gone to conferences together, and encouraged each other as writers and sisters in Christ.
Now, back to Write2Ignite. I’m excited that Linda can be at the conference for the first time and share her love for free verse. Her passion for this art form has helped me grow as a writer. If you have ever thought about delving deeper into your writing or writing a novel in verse, this is the workshop for you.
