Summer Writing Project seeks next great author

The Santa Clara County Library District, which includes the Los Altos main and Woodland libraries, joined forces with JukePop Inc. and Black Hill Press to promote writing and reading through the Summer Writing Project.

A collaborative effort to identify up-and-coming literary talent, the Summer Writing Project provides aspiring authors the opportunity to create novellas (fictional narratives normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel) and submit them one chapter at a time for immediate quantitative and qualitative feedback from readers.
