Great news from the powerhouse Austin SCBWI!

Congratulations to Aimee Thomas, who has won Austin SCBWI’s 2018 Cynthia Leitich Smith Writing Mentor Award! Plus, our mentor Jennifer Ziegler has decided to expand her mentorship to include an Honor recipient, Amy Bearce. Aimee receives a year’s mentorship with Jennifer, including one full manuscript critique. Amy receives one full manuscript critique.“Coming to a decision was tough!” said Jennifer. “Every entry swept me up, intrigued me with its premise, and had me rooting for its characters. In the end I chose two manuscripts I felt would benefit the most from my experiences and expertise.”
