I'm not a writer, but I'm in awe of the Disco Mermaids for their kind gesture. In honor of Jay’s first book, Thirteen Reasons Why, they are going to pay the tuition for someone to attend the SCBWI summer conference. All you have to do is give thirteen reasons why the Disco Mermaids should pay your tuition, and you could be the lucky winner. It's their way of giving back for all that SCBWI has given to them, and I found it to be a touching gesture.
Way cool, Mermaids.
