It’s nearly here! We are so excited about Christmas and we want to wish all our agents and their families a very safe and happy Christmas and holiday time. While the Girl Hero Team takes a break there will be no posts from 24 December until the new year.
And what a new year it will be! We are so excited because in January Susannah is launching The Girl Hero Project.
Susannah tells us the why and what about The Girl Hero Project
‘The EJ12 stories have helped young girls find the hero in themselves, to be brave and to stand up for the things they believe in. Stories and words are powerful: they help us understand our world and ourselves and they help us connect to each other. They shape our thoughts and can help us make better choices.
‘I know how good young girls are at using their words. Over the years I’ve received hundreds of letters from girls who have written their own EJ fan fiction, writing stories of courage and problem-solving. And on the blog they encourage each other, support each other, cheer each other on. Inspired, they are now inspiring others. That’s the power of words and story.’
‘I want to keep girls talking and writing, and keep talking to girls. I want them to keep thinking about what they can do – what all girls can do – and how they can be the best they can be, to do the best for the world.’
‘I want The Girl Hero Project to be a project that encourages, shares and inspires.’
The Girl Hero Project will launch with lots of things to help you shine including a major writing competition where you can win a writing master class with Susannah! We can’t wait!
