Richmond Young Writers

I am inspired by the young writers I had the privilege to work with this past Thursday afternoon. Sometimes, it's too easy to overlook the talent and passion that young people have--and not just for video games--but for storytelling. I was blown away by the talent these folks possessed and by how much they wanted to write! The writers ranged in age from elementary school to high school, and Jessica (16) has completed her first novel and is currently submitting it to agents! Thanks to Valley Haggard and thanks to Ward at Chop Suey Books, and most importantly thanks to Bean (Hannah), Carla Adams (Kaavya), Jessica, Henry, Ryan, Maddie, Chico, Eli and Emily. Thanks again, Richmond's young writers!
