"I belong to a group of New Brunswick writers called the River Girls. We inspire and encourage each other with our writing. It is always helpful to have someone new read my work, especially a published writer. One of the River Girls let me know about the 50/50 project and I couldn’t refuse. I am always looking for ways I can give back, since I am so fortunate in life to be happy, healthy and safe. I have been matched with Marni Graff and have submitted pages from two novels that I am working on, a murder mystery and a children’s fantasy novel. I look forward to her feedback. Thanks so much, Kathy-Diane, for this win-win opportunity, and thanks to the authors who are providing such a wonderful service."
"I heard about Writers Who Care and the 50/50 project from Kathy-Diane Leveille. I feel humbled as I contribute to this devastating cause. Hunger is something that still hangs in the memory of the Irish people who suffered the horrors of the Great Potato Famine in the 1840's and scattered much of the population to the four corners of the globe in their effort to escape its fate. I have been working on a memoir of my youth in Ireland in the 50's and 60's and appreciate the opportunity to have my writing evaluated by a published author. I must say it feels strange to be able to receive something in return for donating. I look forward to receiving any tips or feedback that will help me along the way..I applaud all the 'Writers Who Care' who came on board to offer their time and talents to this worthy cause. Thank you."
