We are THRILLED to announce that YARN Alum and award-winning writer-teacher-editor Laura Williams McCaffrey will be our new Fiction Editor.
Actually, thrilled doesn’t even quite cover it. We feel lucky-happy-dancing-grateful-yay-great-things-happen-party-down EXCITED.
Because, you know, we PUBLISHED her. Twice. And she made us so proud by winning an SCBWI Magazine Merit Award for “Into the Vast”! And then we published “Crow’s Face” just this past March. Meanwhile, between short stories, she also published “Marked” a sci-fi page-turner that’s been racking up the awesome reviews. She’s also been mentoring young writers in the Pine Manor MFA program, and just generally immersing herself in the world of YA and young people. She’s a natural fit for YARN, and we are honored to have her.
Read more about her on our masthead. And get ready to hit her up with your best fiction this fall!
