The Novella Project is a writing opportunity made available to Central Magnet School students. If you attend another school and would like to participate, I can work out a schedule to help fulfill your dream of self-publishing.
One of the hardest things you will do is to develop a story idea that you will stick with for an entire academic year. Think long and hard on this one.
