Aitken shared a series of short stories from accomplished authors who are very skilled at developing characters, and led attendees in a series of writing exercises designed to help them bring their own characters and scenes to life.

Ever thought of writing something for the editorial page that makes reference to the content in your book? Sheila O'Connor, author, Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts and Fictions did. Here is a link to her piece published in the New York Times' Opinion section on Nov. 14.
What is considered the biggest fundraising day of the year for nonprofits in Minnesota paid off in a big way for Sigma's Bookshelf, what is believed to be the first and only traditional book publishing company exclusively for teen authors. Thanks to 15 generous donors, the company is now funded for anotherr year. The donated funds will be used to pay for such expenses as purchasing ISBNs for future books, helping to cover the cost of the software needed to bring books to market, securing tables at book events, etc. The company is run by unpaid volunteers.
Sigma’s Bookshelf is a fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts, a nonprofit arts services organization. All donations made via the company's GiveMN page are tax deductible and can be made at any time.
The company currently has 14 teen authored books available and more in the pipeline. Learn more about Sigma's Bookshelf at SigmasBookshelf.com.
