Not only is it a joy to find myself amongst such talented company, it is also a fitting demonstration of just how worthwhile and successful the RNA New Writers Scheme is. Each and every one of us, and our debut novels, has had the benefit of passing through the scheme and hasn't it done us proud? If ever an aspiring author was in two minds as to whether or not to join then take a look at this list and get planning! Becoming a part of the RNA NWS family isn't just about the manuscript critique, although that of course is second to none, it is also about the love, friendship and support of a whole new bunch of friends who want nothing more than to see you succeed.
Wishing everyone the very best of luck! I'm looking forward to catching up with you all at the party next month.
