"2020 has been… quite a year. But this 2020 bunch of MA in Writing for Young People students are… quite a cohort. Honestly, they are extraordinary. If you are an agent or a publisher reading this, I urge you to open your ears WIDE because you will want to know more about them. So, if you aren’t thinking it already, let me assure you in the loudest way I can with simple letters on a page: the work in this anthology is EXTRAORDINARY. And these students are that, too; they are also hardworking, resilient, empathetic, and enormously, brilliantly talented. None of this is an easy accomplishment in the midst of a pandemic. We are so proud of them."
