I’m very honoured to have been chosen by Thomas King for a Writers’ Trust Rising Star Mentorship. There’s never a bad time to receive some mentorship from one of your heroes, but I have to say the timing on this is really wonderful, as I’ve been struggling with my current work-in-progress, The Matriarchs, for long enough, and I’m eager to move ahead!
“Baker is blessed with an exacting eye for the disturbing and humorous detail and an ability to hear pain and sorrow, joy and delight, a rare talent who can make you smile and cringe and think in the same sentence.” -Thomas King
A short excerpt from the Matriarchs manuscript was recently published in the Hairstreak Butterfly Review, a journal out of Colorado College. I was lucky to get to work with Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer as my editor, she is positively brilliant. Have a look!
