Worth Your Salt Fiction Contest: Confessions of a Sixth Grade Siren

I am excited today to post this excerpt of my middle grade novel (a work in progress) which won a fiction contest over at the very cool Hazel & Wren blog: CONFESSIONS OF A SIXTH GRADE SIREN

Hazel & Wren is based in Minnesota, a state where I once spent a summer living in a messy old house, interning at the amazing Loft Literary Center, and serving pie at a diner. Their contest was professional, courteous and well-organized; I definitely encourage other writers to work with them and participate in their events.

In their own words, this is what you'll find at Hazel & Wren:

Here you’ll find things like an interactive online Open Mic, an all-inclusive, totally informational calendar of Minneapolis/St. Paul literary events, a scary-fantasticcalendar of writing contest and lit journal deadlines, informational tidbits onhow to start your own lit mag and/or letterpress, gads of lit reviewsinterviews, fun writing prompts, limited-edition letterpress goodies, and all sorts of other literary/visual/eclectic nonsense. (
