  3. Young Adult Author Wendy Higgins spoke at the June 1 2013 meeting of the Maryland Writers' Association Montgomery County chapter. This is part 2 of her talk.

    Wendy Higgins, author of the Sweet Trilogy: Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril, and forth coming Sweet Reckoning, will share her journey to publishing with one of the "Big Six" publishers -- including some surprises she encountered along the way -- at the June meeting of the MWA's Montgomery County Chapter on Saturday, June 1, 2013, in Room PE 116 in the Physical Education Building on the Rockville campus of Montgomery College, 51 Mannakee Street, in Rockville.

    The title of Higgin's presentation is "An Untraditional Path to Traditional Publishing." She was discovered by HarperCollins/HarperTeen in an unconventional way the summer of 2010. While searching for possible critique partners online, she stumbled across the now defunct teen writing site, Inkpop, owned by HarperCollins.

    Not only did she meet writers who would eventually become trusted critique partners, but it was this website that led to networking for her first agent, and catching the eye of Alyson Day, an editor at Harper who brought her debut novel to acquisitions. Nearly all of Wendy's journey has taken place via the world wide web, including her own massive self-marketing efforts which have surpassed her dreams and expectations.

    About the speaker:
    After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing from George Mason University and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, Wendy taught high school English until she became a mother. Writing Young Adult (YA) stories gives her the opportunity to delve into the ambiguities of those pivotal, daunting, and exciting years before adulthood.

    She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, daughter, and son. Sweet Evil was her debut novel. You can email Wendy at: wendyhigginswrites@gmail.com and visit her on the web at: wendyhigginswrites.com/
