Greetings readers, I received an email about this event and thought I’d pass along the information. I don’t know much about this project, but I did really like Melissa Kantor’s earlier novel (for teens rather than tweens) Confessions of a Not-It Girl. So, if anyone can make it to the event this weekend here’s the info:
Attention all tween girls in the NYC area!
The Amanda Project is the first series that invites tween girls to become a part of the mystery and contribute their own stories and ideas! Come celebrate the publication of the first in the 8-book series – Invisible I – and launch of The Amanda Project!
Hear author Melissa Kantor read from the book and talk about writing collaborative fiction.
AND, in the spirit of Amanda, we’re also taking submissions from tween girls who aspire to be writers! Send your latest piece of fiction (up to 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll pick a select group of writers to read at the event!
