National Bestselling Author
BRITTNEY HOLMES JACKSON
Are you a PK (Preacher's Kid) or a kid who grew up going to church all the time? If you are, it's likely you have a story to tell.
Church, while a place for spiritual refuge and worship, has often been characterized as a place where the funniest or even most emotional events occur. Maybe you've experienced a hilarious moment that you and your cousins still laugh about today. Or maybe there was a more serious event that resulted in trauma that you or someone you know has had to overcome as the years have passed. Maybe there is an event surrounding your upbringing that resulted in a learned lesson for you or even your parents. Whatever it may be, we want to hear about it.
This is an opportunity for you to become a published writer, while working with two national bestselling authors and mother-daughter writing duo, Kendra Norman and Brittney Holmes Jackson. We are publishing an anthology entitled, My Life as a PK: The Laughs and The Lessons. We are seeking aspiring authors and published authors to be a part of this project.
