If you’ve seen my latest youtube video, you’ll know that I was accepted into the Madcap Retreats Inaugural Aspiring Author’s Workshop!!
This workshop will be held in a lodge in Tennessee for a week in March. Forty aspiring authors (including myself) will attend different panels and sessions with YA authors such as Maggie Stiefvater, Victoria Schwab, Dhonielle Clayton, Renee Adieh and soooo many more wonderful women.
I found out about the opportunity on Twitter and I applied on a whim, not wanting to get my hopes up, even though I had a good feeling about it. I found out I got accepted two weeks ago and I was so surprised!
I feel so blessed to have this opportunity and I can’t wait to meet all of the other aspiring authors and learn from all of the wonderful YA authors that will be there!
Although I will be all ears at the workshop and will be taking notes intensively, trying to soak as MUCH information in as I can, I will try my best to blog my experience, or at the very least, take some pictures. 🙂
I want to start reading the books I haven’t read by these authors. I already own The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, but I have no clue where to start with Victoria Schwab’s books. I know some people have suggested The Archived or Vicious. What do you recommend?
Are any of y’all residing in Tennessee? Have any of you ever visited the mountains there? if so, I would love some travel tips (especially the best way to get here, I’m definitely having trouble deciding if I want to fly or take a train!)
I will keep y’all posted! 🙂
