Your RSVP is requested! Today is the last day to sign-up for our Write-In/Sketch-In for Children’s, YA Writers and Illustrators. Work on your latest project surrounded by fellow authors and illustrators, with refreshments, hourly door prizes, and lots of moral support! This free program is co-sponsored by BCPL and the MD/DE/WV Region of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Sounds like a fun way to kickstart your writing and illustrating after the summer!
This coming Tuesday, September 15th, is the deadline to submit to the SCBWI Write This! monthly prompt. From their website:
Write This! is a monthly prompt for writers appearing in the monthly SCBWI INSIGHT.
For its inaugural appearance, we ran the first 500 entries in our online gallery. Going forward, we will choose the best 20 entries submitted to us by the 15th of each month. The top entries for Write This! will appear in a special online gallery so agents, editors, and your colleagues have yet another way of hearing your writing voice. A link to the gallery will be provided in the next issue of INSIGHT sent out on the first of each month.
The October 2015 Write This! prompt is in 50 words or less, portray an inopportune time to get a case of hiccups.
Go here for more information and submission guidelines. Good luck!
Don’t forget about all the upcoming events for the Fall that Laura posted about, including the Baltimore Book Festival. It’s a little over two weeks away and will feature a number of our region’s authors. Try not to miss it!
Happy writing and illustrating!
