By attending the 2016 Midwest Writers Workshop in Muncie, Indiana, author Adrianne Russell will gain valuable feedback on a work in progress that she plans to submit for agent representation and publication. The project is a young adult contemporary novel that has already received interest from a publisher, but more work on it is necessary. Upon her return to Kansas City, she would like to create development opportunities for local and regional writers to learn from faculty and/or attendees of the workshop, by presenting a series of readings of original works in progress by aspiring authors of color, who often don’t have opportunities to develop skills of reading work aloud and work-shopping their fiction.
