For all of my fellow KidLit writers, here's an excellent opportunity I wanted you to know about. #PBCritiqueFest (October 12-30th) is a raffle and Picture Book Community event being hosted by PB Author and Blogger, Brian Gehrlein (www.PBSpotlight.com). On October 31st, 36 winners will be selected to receive a manuscript critique from an industry professional.
And, y'all, I'm not joking when I say industry professionals. The line-up of participants is impressive. We're talking KidLit authors, illustrators and agents like Ame Dyckman, Corey Rosen Schwartz, Josh Funk, Cori Doerrfeld, Carole Boston Weatherford, Megan & Jorge Lacera, Stephen Barr, and the illustrious Tara Lazar!
This contest is open to picture book authors and author/illustrators-- and you still have time to enter! Visit www.pbspotlight.com/pbcritiquefest!
And a deep and heartfelt thank you to Brian, for hosting such a wonderful event for the KidLit community, and to all of the participants who have volunteered their time and energy to critique manuscripts and dummies. You all are the best! <3
