pages iconThe first featured writer is Silvia Acevedo, young adult author of God Awful Loser.  In the videos below, Silvia talks about her work and shares a glimpse into her writing process as she works on the follow-up to her first book. A major highlight of her example writing process takes place as she deletes two entire chapters in the best interest of the story—a powerful example of revision, which includes letting go.

Silvia sits down for an interview and shares ideas related to:

  • Making characters real
  • Using feedback
  • Revising and editing
  • Sharing your writing with others
  • Great moments from sharing your writing
  • Advice for students, including practicing writing to get better
  • Research and writing
