First off, I won 4th place in a writing contest! It’s super-exciting for sure!!! Check out the Contest winners here: https://danalatorre.com/2017/08/15/here-are-you-winners-dan-alatorres-word-weaver-writing-contest-oct-2017/ It’s amazing!! My winning piece will be featured on their site soon, so stay tuned for the link to be posted on the Works page and here on the blog.
I’m also announcing that I’m currently working on two major projects (aka novels) and, starting September, I may write a little about how those ones are going. One of them is a YA Fantasy novel (haha, shocker, right?) and the other is a Young Adult Coming-of-Age novel. Both are very different in a ton of ways, and that will be shared here eventually.
Last thing: Have you checked out the new magazine, Seshat? If you haven’t, click the link I’ve provided and check it out! Submissions have begun to slow down, but we’re still open to pieces in case you have something YOU want to share through our magazine! The magazine’s deadline is September 1, 2017, and the official release date is September 15, 2017. We still have some room to include your pieces!
That’s just about all I wanted to share right now. Have a great day, everyone, and enjoy these last days of summer!
