And YWP's Summer Interns Shannon and Grace!
A little bit about Shannon and Grace: They are both Professional Writing majors at Champlain College, just up the street in Burlington.
Shannon Ripp (ShanRippWriting) is a rising junior, specializing in publishing with a minor in digital marketing. She loves writing creative non-fiction and poetry.
Grace Safford (Grace Safford) is a rising sophomore with a concentration in publishing and editing. Her genre of choice is realistic fiction, but she says she also has a "strange and obsessive passion" for grammar and editing.
This summer, feel free to contact any of us -- Geoff, Susan, Shannon, Grace and the rest of the Writing Buddies if you want someone to help you edit or revise your work, or just to toss some ideas around. We're happy to help ... And make sure you check out YWP's Writing Buddies program!
