The first installment in WRITE NOW!, GETTING PUBLISHED AS YOUNG WRITER, digital series is ready!
Taught by Jessica Burkhart, TOP TEN MISTAKES YOUNG WRITERS MAKE, is a must watch video for any writer seeking publication. It is also a great teaching tool for classrooms and libraries.
Published at 14, Jess understands what it's like to be a young writer. Now, at 22 years old, Jess has 20 tween novels published with Simon & Schuster. Over 500,000 copies of her Canterwood Crest series books are in print.
Jess debunks common publishing myths and highlights truths in this 31 minute long video.
Despite the title, TOP 10 is a useful guide for a writer of any age seeking publication.
Jess has visited many classrooms both in person and via Skype. She wanted to create a video for viewers to be able to pause, take notes, or refer back to.
If schools and libraries use Jess's videos, they are able to have an author "visit" without the high costs of travel, paying the author, or dealing with any tech glitches.
Some praise for Jess's teaching:
"Jess Burkhart's Skype author visit was an inspiration to my Middle School Book Club students. She did an amazing job integrating her own personal life story into a motivational talk about the writing process. My students were left feeling excited about doing some writing of their own!" ~Cathie Bashaw Morton, Library Media Specialist, Millbrook Central School District, New York
"Jessica Burkhart is an excellent speaker who engages students by connecting with them through her many experiences as an author.
