What is better than reading and talking with fellow writers about a book that's about writing?
Having the author (who is also an extraordinary editor) join the discussion!
At our last BNCWI meeting Cheryl Klein, editorial director at Lee & Low and author of
The Magic Words, answered members' questions during a Q&A session led by Jason Hussong.
After having read The Magic Words, everyone was eager to learn even more about Cheryl's thoughts
on the writing and publishing process. During the information packed meeting, Cheryl
generously shared expert industry knowledge on everything from word counts and trends
to mapping your book and identifying its core vision. In addition to helping the group with the "hows" of writing, she gave great advice about pinpointing the "whys".
Based on the smiles after the meeting, it was apparent that it was truly the best book club ever!
