Elizabeth Evans was featured in the December 2009 issue of Publishing Trends in an article titled "Publishers Do Good 2009". An excerpt of the article follows:
"Elizabeth Evans, an agent at Kimberley Cameron & Associates, has just helped launch Room to Write, a New York-based group of publishing professionals dedicated to helping local schools inspire their students to become life-long readers and writers. Agents Caren Johnson, Michelle Brower, and Brandi Bowles were also instrumental in the group's implementation. At least through next spring, Room to Write will be working with two local schools: Bronx Early College Academy in the Bronx and The Secondary School for Journalism in Park Slope. 'At BECA, we will be teaching a weekly creative writing workshop to two classes, an 8th grade class and a 9th grade class. For each class, two Room to Write volunteers will co-teach a lesson based on a short story, then guide the students in writing exercises based on the class discussion,' says Evans. 'At the Park Slope school, we'll be conducting a series of publishing-oriented workshops that introduce different aspects of the book's business to sixth and ninth graders. Ultimately, all ninth grade students will submit polished short stories to Slice Magazine at the end of the school year, and Slice editors (and publishing editors) Celia Johnson and Maria Gagliano will select a few top entries to publish in the Fall 2010 issue. All student entries will be published online on the Slice website.' Room to Write currently has about twenty volunteers, roughly half of whom are agents and half editors."

Milo & Thuy Sindell's THE END OF WORK AS YOU KNOW IT received an excellent review in the October 5th issue of PW. The full review follows:
"The Sindells (coauthors of SINK OR SWIM) explore why employees feel disengaged from their work and offer tips for creating greater alignment between who you are and the work you do. The authors are clear-eyed about why so much work feels meaningless ("How does creating a PowerPoint presentation on this quarter's revenues... make a difference in the world?"); they stress that workers must see their jobs as an opportunity for professional and personal growthnot just a paycheckand provide eight strategies to that end: sharing expertise, initiating change, demanding autonomy, creating meaning, sparking creativity, seizing recognition, maintaining balance and building legacy. Each strategy is accompanied by analysis, an illustrative case study, guidance on when to apply it and advice on what will be gained. The book's emphasis on the work-life balance, the necessity of deriving professional fulfillment from work and clear, cogent tips on defining and achieving career goals will help employees at all levels reap personal rewards in the workplace. (Jan.)"
