Book Release Day for Pickford Community Library Young Writers Workshop students!

Release Day is always a big event here at JLB Creatives Publishing but this one is extra special to us. Today we release not one, but two books written by members of the Pickford Community Library Young Writers Workshop (YWW).

What makes this so special you ask? Well the fact that these awesome reads are written by high school students with a passion for writing and books as big as any professional author.

About the YWW Program
The Pickford Community Library, which is centrally located in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula, is home to a Young Writers Workshop where students from the area learn the techniques and practices of becoming published authors. They have combined some of their stories in an anthology that includes short stories, essays, and flash fiction.

This is the second year the group has published their works on Smashwords and made the anthology free of charge to the public. It is published pro bono by JLB Creatives Publishing of Mt. Dora, Florida, home of one of the co-instructors of the group. The other co-instructor is from the Eastern U.P.. and together they teach their sessions via Skype. The students range in age from grade six to college, and there are sessions geared to both newbies and returning authors.

This year we are very proud to release the 2014 Pickford Community Library's Young Writers Workshop Anthology of Short Stories, Flash Fiction, and Essays 

Written by young authors Chelsea Ross, Edyn Nettleton & Amy Lehigh

Imagine being stuck in school forever. Living there, working there, and eating every meal there. That’s what Taryn and every other kid from her town has to do. What they don’t know is that this so-called slave school is run by Taryn’s father. This secret will lead to heartbreak and despair. Freedom will be had, but not without a heavy cost.
