virtual event; open to all Fiction 360 mentees and select NaNoWriMo participants only | required for Fiction 360 participants
Dutton Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House, works with Girls Write Now each year to produce our annual print anthology. Publicity—and marketing—driven, its focused list of fifty books per year is made up of half fiction and half nonfiction. Dutton’s imprints include Caliber, Plume and Tiny Reparations Books.
Margery Hannah excitedly joins Girls Write Now after several years in program development and management within the nonprofit sector. An ardent supporter of education, Margery has experience teaching K-12 English throughout NYC. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English, Literature, and Ethnic Studies from Wichita State University, where she received multiple scholarships and English departmental honors; an MFA in Creative Writing and Literature from Stony Brook University; and an MA in Aging Studies from Wichita State University. She is a McNair Scholar alumna whose scholarly research, rooted in an investigation over the psychological impact of American slavery on modern Foundational Black Americans, helped propel financial literacy course requirements for Kansas high school graduates. Passionate about writing, Margery worked as a ghostwriter for many years; currently she keeps a multi-genre blog called The Literary Purveyor.
