Hello, my friends!
I know you’re waiting on the Valentiny Contest results, and I promise, they are coming!
But today I need to sneak in a little special post to let you all know about a great opportunity that starts Monday, so I want to give you all a chance to sign up if you’re interested!
Rosie J. Pova, children’s author, who has been a frequent prize donor for the contests held here, has put together a free event for picture book writers: The Top Shelf Picture Books Seminar.
She is hosting 15 authors and editors between Monday March 6th and Saturday March 12th – industry professionals who all started out at the beginning too, who can hopefully shed a little light on the industry for people who are new to it, and give everyone inspiration, motivation, and a little extra boost toward getting your books into the hands of the children you’ve written them for.
If you’re just getting started writing picture books, or you’ve been working at it for a while but still feel like you have a lot to learn, or simply haven’t gotten as far as you hoped, this is the event for you. And did I mention it’s free? Always a plus! 😊 You’re not going to want to miss this! Click HERE to sign up!
Polishing your manuscript, writing a query letter, finding the right agent, and publishing a book can be overwhelming, daunting, and confusing… But the Top Shelf Picture Books Seminar will give you a chance to learn from industry experts who were once beginners, too.

Thank you, Susanna, for bringing this opportunity to us!
Looking forward to hearing what you have to share :).
I hope you enjoy it, Phyllis! I get so nervous for talking on camera that I can’t remember anything I said 🤣🤣🤣
Oh my gosh, Susanna, I know just how you feel!
But, I know you’ll do great!
Oh, Phyllis, save your judgment. Save your judgment! 🤣
Thumbs up :)!
