Just a quick post today to tell you all a little bit about the two writers I’ve chosen to be regular contributors to Write It Sideways over the next six months, while I’m busy taking care of our twins-to-be.
Considering how wonderful all of the candidates have been, the decision has been exceptionally difficult. And I do mean exceptionally.
Susan Bearman is a writing veteran of more than 20 years, working as a ghost writer, technical writer and business editor. She teaches writing and social media for writers, and her current works-in-progress include several picture books, a memoir and a mystery. Follow her on Twitter, and read Susan on her own blog, Two Kinds of People, and weekly on the Garanimals Blog.
Sarah Baughman is a writer and trained teacher who has published articles in print and online publications. Her collection of creative non-fiction essays won the Michigan Writers Cooperative Press 2010 Chapbook Contest. You can follow her on Twitter and check out her blog, A Line At A Time.
And, I’d like to give an enormous thank you to the other candidates for their wonderful guest articles:
Sarah Callender is represented by Rebecca Oliver at William Morris Endeavor, and her novel is currently undergoing a round of revisions. She received a 2010 King County Arts Commission grant for an interdisciplinary art/poetry project in the Seattle Public Schools, and the first chapter of her novel, BETWEEN THE SUN AND THE ORANGES, received Honorable Mention in the 2010 Lorian Hemingway Short Story Competition. Sarah blogs regularly at Inside-Out Underpants. She lives with her husband and two children in Seattle where she is hard at work on her second novel.
Note: For personal reasons, Sarah Callender withdrew from the contributor search, but she’s looking forward to guest posting for us in the future.
Christi Craig writes flash fiction and short stories, and is currently at work on her first novel. For more about Christi and her writing, visit her website. You can also follow her on Twitter or friend her on Facebook.
Krissy Brady is a freelance writer located in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada. She is a blogger dedicated to keeping the passion for writing alive, and is currently working on her first novel, poetry collection and screenplay. To learn more and keep in touch with Krissy, visit her blog, and follow her through RSS, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for the latest writing-related information.
Cindy Huff is a writer and speaker, member of the Christian Writers Guild, and president of Word Weavers in Aurora, Illinois. She has been a guest columnist for the Beacon News, script writer for CBH, and has had articles and children’s stories published in various periodicals. Visit her blog Writer’s Patchwork for more writing tips and author interviews.
Mercia Dragonslayer blogs on Slaying Dragons when she has something fun or crazy to say. In 2010, she was published in The Young Writer’s Magazine. She lives in North Carolina with her family and two cats.
I’ve really enjoyed reading all of the articles these lovely writers have shared with us over the past couple of months, and the feedback they’ve received in the comments section has been amazing.
I hope you’ll continue to support each of these writers by visiting and subscribing to their blogs, and following them on Facebook or Twitter.
I look forward to seeing you in the New Year (in the meantime, you can enjoy some more guest posts on Write It Sideways).
Happy holidays, everyone!
