Associate Prose Editor

 

P. J. Worrell marvelled at the courage of the young writers whose stories appear in Windscript. They wrote close to the bone, and their work matters. Her role as Associate Prose Editor was to help them shape and polish their manuscripts, with attention to structure, character development, and voice. Worrell has engaged with young writers in the Sage Hill Teen Writing Experience and in high school workshops. She is the author of Proudflesh, numerous short stories published in literary journals and anthologies, and "On the Eve of Hallowe'en" in apart, the SK Writers' Guild pandemic anthology.
