The day has finally come, TWNers!
We are officially announcing the amazing, talented, young authors who will be featured in TWN’s upcoming anthology, Imagine. EEEEEEKKK!!!!!!!😃 THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who submitted!!!!!!!!!!!! We LOVED reading all your stories!!!!!!!!! And let’s just go ahead and say we were REALLY impressed with all the wonderful submissions! We had such creative stories, and well, it looks like the next generation of authors are probably gonna be some of the greatest ones we’ve ever seen!!!!!!
So, first we’re gonna share the working blurb that may more or less slightly change and then we’ll announce the authors.
Such a small word for such a huge impact it has. Every great story begins here—in that moment after the idea but before the story is completed. The spark. The vision. The idea that will expand into a story that clings to reader’s hearts for a lifetime. An author’s story is limited only by his imagination, and how far he is willing to go to breathe life into characters. To build the foundations of another world. To see the struggles and envision the victories. To search for the magic burning in the darkness.
Teen Writers’ Nook presents a collection of short stories and poems from talented young authors that will take you beyond the boundaries of your mind. From snarky protagonists to the tear-jerking sacrifice. From mystical fantasy worlds to indescribable sci-fi stories. Thrilling adventures, daring choices, inspiring messages, heartfelt romances, and everything in between. Maybe—just maybe—these tales will have you journey past reality and to the depths of your imagination. Will you take the risk and embark through the pages of this book?
Is that exciting or what? Now are you ready for the official announcing of Imagine‘s authors? Then let’s do this!!!! Author’s name will be first and then their story’s name will be beside them. And then in parenthesis it will say if it’s a poem or short story. Alrighty–here goes the authors:
