This has been a great week for two of our members, who've been honored in different ways:
First, Rory Shay, who is a newly settled SCBWI-WWA member from one year ago, just shared that a post she wrote on perseverance in publishing is up on the national SCBWI web page! She writes, "It’s scary to know that so many people will now be able to see my terrifying tale of publishing, but hopefully it’ll help people too!" Welcome, Rory, and congratulations on your national spotlight!
And if that wasn't cool enough, Karen Meissner was selected Highlight's Author of the Month for her story, "An Honest Mistake," published in their November 2015 issue. It is the second time she has been so honored. Fantastic, Karen––and cheers to you on your latest recognition!
For members who have good news to share, please send it to us at the Chinook! It's going to be seen, appreciated, and celebrated. And, it will spread far and wide since our posts automatically end up posting on our SCBWI-WWA Facebook group page, which has members from all over the planet.
Please send all good news to firstname.lastname@example.org. Great news! Great work!
