marinated smarts and credentialed experience to pull this off, and they do! No dictated wisdom
from on high here, no grafted creativity, THE YOUNG ADULT WRITER’S JOURNEY is accessible,
motivational and a clear map that leaves plenty of room to discover for anyone wanting to explore
their creative side.”-Thomas Sullivan, Pulitzer-nominated author of THE PHASES OF HARRY MOON
