What's New with Laura

Dear Visitor,

As I mentioned in my last few posts, I have stepped away from the Financial Literacy Movement to get back to my passion: writing and mentoring young writers.

I have since launched a company called Laura Thomas Communications. Our mission is to promote the development of young writers worldwide, and we are well on our way to managing one of the fastest growing writing contests for youth on the planet.

The 6th Annual Junior Authors Short Story Contest had over 1,800 entries form young writers in 67 this year, plus I have added a one-day Junior Authors Writers Conference in Richmond, BC which will take place in October. Along with an active Junior Blogger program, these are the channels through which I recruit and train talented young writers to freelance for me as junior copywriters.

My YA fantasy novel that teaches aspiring authors how write a publishable short story is now available in eBook and paperback at your favourite bookstore. It's called Polly Wants to Be a Writer: The Junior Authors Guide to Writing and  Getting Published.

Thank you to all my readers, and please stay in touch with me through my jaBlog, Write Q&A Facebook Page, on Twitter as LauraThomasComm, or by email.

I will be auditioning for Dragons' Den in 2015 when my fin lit, children's, animal fantasy novel The Adventures of Bob Warhop is finished.

Thank you for your support and wonderful comments.
