Our First High School Intern & News

She is a junior at Leland and Gray Union High School in Townshend, Vermont, where she lives, and hopes to learn everything there is to learn about writing and the publishing world.

Lindsey is helping to edit this young adult/middle grade reader fiction coming out in May, The Order of the Trees.TheOrderoftheTreesFrontCover

In the process of working on the Reader Guide for the end of the book, Lindsey immediately wowed one of our newest GWP authors, Katy Farber, and here is what Katy had to say about Lindsey!

“We need to hear the voices of our adolescents. They matter and have the power, skills, and ideas to transform our world for the better. By including a high school intern on the Green Writer’s Press team, we not only provide real world experience for a local teenager, but empower her and others of her generation to see how they can be a force for good in the wider world. In addition, writer’s for middle level/young adults should listen up to the voices of young adult readers—they can share with us their passions, perspectives, and criticisms of literature, society, and the future in a way that no adult can.”

We’d also like to welcome our newest associate editor!
