New Homeschool Writing Club

Greetings Friends,

I am very happy to announce to you the conception of the HYCWA--the Homeschooled Young Christian Writers' Association. It was founded by my cousin Elizabeth Ramirez (a frequent contributor to Blue) andhas the makings of a really neat thing!

Here is the letter she sent me about it:

I wanted to inform you of the making of an association for young, home-schooled writers called the HYCWA (Home-school Christian Young Writers' Association). We organize into pairs, and each sends the other their stories. The writer's partner critiques his story, and vice versa, so that they are perfected before they are sent in to publishing, if the writer so desires. Only two requirements are made for the stories: (1 That they contain no rough language or inappropriate items for young children and (2 that they comply with the certain values of Christians. If you would like to join, please email me back and we will match up partners. You may have a partner in your family if you would like, but it would be better if people had partners they did not know so they have not perhaps partly read the story over that person's shoulders.
Thank you for considering this. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to write and perhaps publish something.

If you are interested in this, look for more information in the upcoming issue of Blue!
