Finish your next picture book draft before Memorial Day

Finish your next picture book draft before Memorial Day, Monday May 29.

Need help with your first draft?
Work with a developmental editor to write the first draft of your picture book in the April 5 – May 24, 2017 Intensive Picture Book Workshop –and revise it twice.

First draft already done?
Send in your completed picture book for a Picture Book WIP Critique or schedule a phone consultation to talk about your book.

A phone consultation costs $100 less than a written critique because as we talk you will be the one taking notes about the changes you want to make.

My writers come from all levels of the continuum, from beginner to already published. Some sold the books they wrote when we were working together while others continued to master their craft and sold their first book later. Are you ready to work with a writing mentor? Are you looking for a critique to help you take your book to the next level? Sign up for a first draft workshop or a revision critique so we can start working together!

I look forward to working with you!

Write your #kidlit book before the winter holidays

developmentaleditor

Write the next draft of your children’s book BEFORE the winter holidays begin — so you’ll be ready to send it to an agent in 2017!

Q. How will you critique my children’s book manuscript?
A. I will work with you one-to-one for 8 or 10 weeks via email in these panster / plotter workshops. (Pansters discover their story as they write. Plotters plan before they write.)

You will free write draft zero (panster), select a story arc (plotter), and then write (panster) and revise (plotter) your picture book manuscript or that all-important first chapter of your children’s novel.

All of the writing lessons, goal worksheets, and critique worksheets are on a private site. After you sign up, I will send you a password.

Enter the ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY National Writing Contest!

“In 1974, the Council on Interracial Books sponsored a writing contest seeking out diverse voices. Mildred D.

It introduced the Logan family and was followed by Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (1976), which won the Newbery Medal.

Forty years later, in partnership with We Need Diverse Books™, Penguin Young Readers celebrates this momentous publication by launching a debut children’s fiction contest to find talented, ethnically diverse authors writing for readers ages 8-14.”
