September 11, 2008 09:00 ET Announces First Discovered Author

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2008) - -- an online community for aspiring writers to engage, share, encourage and appraise each other's work -- is thrilled to announce their first Discovered Author, Kayla Meyers. WritingRoom was immediately struck by Meyers' economy of language, sensitivity, and humanity. A depth and intelligence in her work made Kayla an obvious choice for WritingRoom's first Discovered Author.

Kayla Meyers' literary debut, "The Butterfly Paperweight: A Collection of Poems & Short Stories," is as sensitive and inspiring as the writer herself.

Part of what makes Kayla Meyers such a fascinating new voice, beyond the uniqueness of her style, is the writer herself: At the young age of 19, Kayla knows something about suffering and struggle -- knowledge and nuances that inform the steady pages of "The Butterfly Paperweight."

After enduring an unfathomable 36 surgeries due to Spina Bifida, Kayla Meyers has managed to turn adversity into art, spinning some of the most provocative short stories and creating powerful poems that sing, startle, as well as sail -- characteristics of some of the finest writers of our time.

Stay tuned for more from Kayla Meyers and as "The Butterfly Paperweight: A Collection of Poems & Short Stories" takes flight. ( /

"The Butterfly Paperweight: A Collection of Poems and Short Stories" is published by "The Butterfly Paperweight" will be available in the PublishingRoom bookstore and online at Amazon and BN September 2008.
