1. Pam Calvert's Picture Book University studies a different aspect of creating picture books each Monday. To view today's lesson about storyboarding, click HERE. Last Monday, she had a lesson about 10 picture book genres. It's a fantastic resource for those interested in picture books.
2. Looking for a contest to flex your writing muscles? Look no further than Quirk Books -- a very cool publishing company based in my hometown of Philly. (Hmm. Makes me want a Philly soft pretzel RIGHT NOW!)
They are offering a $10,000 prize and publication for a novel-length work, featuring fresh, fun and strikingly unconventional love stories. Deadline is October 1, 2013.
Read all about the contest HERE.
3. Today, I'm the guest author at Kate Messner's Teachers Write free summer on-line writing institute. If you want to make sense of sensory writing, click HERE.
Be sure to check out the other mini-lessons, Q&As, etc. from many authors.
Here's hoping your summer is going all write!
