Margi joins the Story Guild


Novice middle grade and young adult novelists looking to share their work and gain feedback from fellow writers have a new opportunity. Story Guild is a national program in which participants read from their unsubmitted novels and discuss their writing with their peers and a host author.

The program, created by children’s author Jonathan Auxier, will launch its first season this spring in six cities across the country. Visit Jonathan’s website to learn more.
