New program: Young Writers on the Web
DWAA is excited to encourage the next generation of writers with a new program called Young Writers on the Web. Writers who are under 18 years old are encouraged to submit stories about dogs for possible publication on a special section of the DWAA website, and potentially in our newsletter Ruff Drafts as space allows.
We’re thrilled that experienced journalist and editor Mara Bovsun, features editor at AKC Family Dog, will edit submissions and work with young writers to help polish their work for publication. The chance to work with a professional of Mara’s caliber is a fantastic opportunity for budding writers!
Articles published by the program will be eligible as entries for DWAA’s annual writing competition. This is great news since Karen Petit, a prolific author of children’s books, sponsors a special award just for writers under 18 years old. It’s a wonderful chance to receive recognition and win $400!
