The Contemps group is looking for new members.
Would you or someone you know like to be a member of the 2011/2012 Contemps Group?
You must:

* have a contemporary YA novel with a traditional publisher coming out between 9/2011 and 8/2012.

* be able to commit to blogging at least once a month.
* offer up ideas, skills and/or abilities that could serve a group of authors and help us to connect to readers, teachers and librarians. Please note: this is a working group.
To be considered for membership, please send an e-mail to thecontemps(at)gmail(dot)com and request an application. Applications will be accepted through July 10, 2011. 20 to 25 members will be selected and everyone will be notified as soon as possible after the 15th so work can begin to get the new group up and running by mid-August.
Please help us spread the word to message boards, author groups, etc. And then stay tuned for our new group of authors to be revealed someday soon! Thank you!!
