|YWW Class of 2014|
Ann Marie Smith, head librarian of Pickford Community Library in Pickford, Michigan crossed paths with JLB Creatives Publishing's Senior Editor, Dar Bagby, and it was a match made in heaven! Together they took advice from one of the local teens and began to put together what is now known as the popular
Young Writers Workshop.
Each school year aspiring young writers are welcome to attend these sessions at the Pickford Community Library. There is a novice class and an advance class. All students are presented an intense, interactive course that includes such things as the basics of writing, the publishing industry, book cover development, writing synopses, creating book trailers, and developing an author platform to name a few.

Presentations are given by the JLB Creatives Publishing team both in person and via Skype. The Michigan team consists of Dar Bagby and Connie Thompson, local U.P. residents. The Florida team consists of Janet Beasley, Jean E. Lane and Elise VanCise. Together the JLBCP team holds in excess of 100 years experience in the literary world.
JLB Creatives Publishing's CEO Janet Beasley was eager to join in when Dar told her what was in the works. Being that Janet is the founder/owner of JLB Creatives Publishing she suggested that the company would like to bring all of the JLBCP team on board to speak at the classes regarding their areas of expertise. She also wanted the aspiring authors to have the opportunity to go through an entire publishing process, including having their short stories and novellas published by a true trade publisher.
It is with pride and joy that JLB Creatives has become the sole publisher as well as the facilitating team for this worthy activity.
