- Stephanie Morrill writes on the website: “Once upon a time, I was a high school student dreaming of being published. Now I’m in my twenties and a working novelist.Because I knew nothing and no one when I started down the road of publication, I’m passionate about sharing what knowledge I’ve gained with the next generation of writers. That’s what Go Teen Writers is all about – encouragement and community.I write young adult contemporary novels, including The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series (Revell) and The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet (Playlist). You can connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or my author website.
Jill Williamson joined the Go Teen Writers team in 2012 and has been an amazing addition. She’s the Christy-award-winning author of the Blood of Kings Trilogy (Marcher Lord Press), Replication (Zondervan), the Mission League series (Marcher Lord Press) and the Safe Lands Trilogy (Zondervan). You can find Jill on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or on her author website. The two of us teamed up to write Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book, in which we talk about, well, how to turn your first draft into a published book.
We hope you find Go Teen Writers to be a fun and encouraging community!”
