Project Canvas || Interview with Alea Harper

Hello writing friends!

Today I'm excited to share a new release that's full of writing advice, inspiration, and encouragement - a book that I was able to contribute to and be a part of!   In addition, I was given the opportunity to interview the cover designer/contributor, Alea Harper!

Are you looking for advice on how to create the perfect villain? Do you need the courage to put
your story down on paper? Find this and more in Project Canvas, a writing resource written
completely by teen and young adult writers and compiled by Caroline Meek and Olivia Rogers.

Project Canvas includes:

● 71 short chapters, each written by a different author
● bonus interviews with authors such as Tessa Emily Hall and Q. Gibson
● world building and character development worksheets
● and other helpful resources!

“This is a writing teacher’s dream – not a how-to book, but more of a literary testimony and homage to the process of writing. A sweet balance between the practical and the spiritual, Project Canvas is concise enough for daily meditation, yet robust enough to move the writer’s soul beyond the temporary.” –Brian Dolezal, professional development and spoken word coach at Sumner Academy of Arts and Science

Project Canvas will be available for purchase through Amazon on November 15.

About the Project Canvas Founders:

Caroline and Olivia have been friends ever since kindergarten, when they met in a homeschooling group.  Their writing journey was a slow evolution over the course of many sleepovers, games of pretend, writing stories together, and finally publishing some of them.

Caroline Meek is the editor-in-chief and co-founder of Project Canvas. She’s originally from Kansas City, Kansas, where she co-authored The Drawing in of Breath and attended Sumner Academy of Arts and Sciences. Caroline has a passion for bringing writers together and is currently studying English & Creative Writing on the Publishing track at the University of Iowa. She’s been published in The Kansas City Star, Ink Lit Mag, Wordsmith, and blogs at Of Stars and Ink-Stained Things.

Olivia Rogers is the co-founder of Project Canvas. She’s originally from the great state of Kansas, where she showed sheep, competitively debated, and also became involved in politics. Olivia believes that writing is the gateway to change. She’s currently studying Political Science and Philosophy at Kansas State University, with the goal of becoming a lawyer and continuing to advocate for others.
