Hello Fellow Scribblers!
I have some wonderful events to share with all of you. But before I do, please take the time to answer this short survey. Your answers will determine if it is indeed feasible for our group to facilitate weeknight events aside from our usual Saturday workshops. Please click on this link to answer the survey:
FOR PICTURE BOOK WRITERS:
Carol, one of our wonderful members, has sent us this information about Mira Reisberg’s 5 Week Course. Mira Reisberg is an award-winning teacher, an author and is also in the process of launching her very own literary agency, so this course is not to miss.
Is this the year for you? The Picture Book Academy’s
Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books e-Course
is now open for registration.
Starting on August 26, 2013, the interactive options always sell out!!
The Craft and Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books is an exciting and transformational five-week-plus e-course for novices, published authors, and even picture book illustrators who want to write their own books.
Taught by Mira Reisberg, an award-winning teacher, children’s book creator and mentor to MANY now successfully published writers and illustrators, and supported by interviews with 20+ empowering and insightful industry experts, this course has been astoundingly successful.
So far, in the past 10-months, 11 of Mira’s students have received a phenomenal 15 contract offers. Many others have scored their dream agents. Will this be your year to shine?
The course is easy-to-navigate, time-flexible and designed to help students become more successful writers. At the end of the course, you’ll have an incredible foundational knowledge of the Craft and Business of Writing Children’s Picture Books and will have worked on or completed a new or revised manuscript and targeted cover letter to send to your ideal editor or agent.

FOR FICTION WRITERS (ESP. NOVELISTS & SCI-FI/FANTASY WRITERS)
Pamela Jaye Smith has written some of my favorite writing books. Many writers, including screenwriters, pay thousands of dollars to attend her courses. But you get to listen to her, and get a free book for $30.
Pamela and her co-author Reece Michaelson will teach us how to use world-building techniques and weave in mythologies to create stories that snag young readers’ imaginations.
