I'm excited to share that I'm now serving as the Managing Editor of Thin Threads, a book series about life changing moments put out by Kiwi Publishing. I'll be overseeing the manuscript selection process, helping to maximize the story collection process, and providing editing/revising for selected work. This, of course, is another hat I am wearing these days along with writer, teacher, consultant, speaker, and coach! I'm looking forward to learning a lot and contributing a lot during the partnership.
Kiwi Publishing is also publishing my anthology of women writers this spring! A sigh of relief as I won't have to solely manage the self-publishing process - more a fear of time constraints versus the task - but most importantly I feel my book is in good hands. I'm actually going to have a printed book! I am psyched.
Please know that Thin Threads is a great opportunity to get a publishing credit. Submission guidelines can be found on the website www.thinthreads.com. A permission fee of $100 is paid to the writer if accepted. There is a writing contest going on right now - $500 to the writer, $500 to their favorite charity. Details are also on the website.
As always, I hope as an MFA alumn (and currently WestConn writing instructor!) that the forward momentum in my writing career can also benefit others and vice versa.
Happy new year!
