Writing Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan here to wish all writers time to write, read, and support other writers.

 

I wrote a review for author Mary B. French.  She had sent me the link to her YouTube and Amazon pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching Children How to be a Good Friend, Go after Their Dreams, and Love Themselves

Mary B. French‘s children’s book about Compass (a teddy bear who has special talents) and his human friend Molly (whose parents are separated) teaches readers (young and old) how to be a good friend, go after our dreams, and love ourselves. Also, I learned a few things about English customs, and, how one would go about meeting the Queen. A sweet story!
Cheers to the author of Bear-ly There With Compass and all the protagonists in the story!
Sincerely, 22-day writing and fanbase-building coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan

 I am reading entries to “Immigrant Experience Writing Contest” which I am sponsoring for the San Mateo County Fair Literary Arts Division and California Writers Club SF Peninsula Branch. Thank you, Bardi Rosman Koodrin, CWC, and everyone who support the many writing contests. Thank you, Professor Sheryl Fairchild, for being co-judge to the contest I’m sponsoring. Bravo to all contestants, for polishing your pieces and submitting to the various contests.

Advice to writers who will be entering their works to any writing contest:  follow guidelines to increase your chance of receiving an award. If the contest’s theme is battling mental illness, write about that; if the contest’s theme is about adopting a pet, write about that.

Pamela Reitman says: ”I am honored to be one of several readers. My current project is based on the life of Charlotte Salomon, who created Life?or Theater?, according to University of Leeds art critic and professor Griselda Pollock, “one of the twentieth century’s most challenging art works.” Charlotte Salomon was a German-Jewish artist in hiding in the South of France, who struggled with the tragic legacy of multiple suicides in her family, to complete a monument to her life in paintings in a race against time before captured by the Nazis.  Hope to see you there!”  www.pamelareitman.com

Dear Bardi Rosman Koodrin, Sue Barizon, Elliotte Mao,

Bardi had invited me to attend the award ceremony on June 11, 2011 (San Mateo County Fair Literary Arts writing contests). I had wanted so much to be there, to thank everyone in the SMCF offices and the writers who entered the contest I sponsored  – “The Immigrant Experience”

A previous commitment prevents me from being there with you on June 11th.

Could you  3 wonderful hearts Bardi, Elliotte, Sue (Sue, I read what you said about Bardi in The Patch) please print the attachment and bring it to the June 11 ceremony and one of you read it for me?

Greetings from author and writing career coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan , the sponsor of The Immigrant Experience Writing Contest. . .  I wish I were with you today.  I’m visiting my friend Patty in the hospital who is another hero like Bardi.  I thank Bardi, and everyone who helped her, for orchestrating the many wonderful writing contests. I thank all the writers who submitted entries to The Immigrant Experience category.  The manuscripts I read touched me deeply.  A second judge, Mary Knippel, and I discussed the merits of each piece. Thank you, Mary.

I extend this offer to all the contestants:  If  you email me at WritingCoachTeresa…I’m at gmail.comI will give you some pointers to polish your piece.  And, I’d love to meet you.  Please go to my website: WritingCoachTeresa.com and look at my Events Page.  On Friday June 17 I’ll be at San Mateo County Fair with my California Writers Club buddies.  I hope to meet you all in person, on facebook,  or through my blog at WritingCoachTeresa.com where you’ll find lots of resources, including links to my Youtube channel and to Amazon for my 22-day workbook, to help you build your writer’s platform to attract agents and publishers.  Remember me as Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan who says: “Reach out, not stress out, when building your writing career.
