I just finished an amazing course in picture book writing from the Picture Book Academy. It was both informative and inspirational.
Every artist and writer needs an inspiration boost sometimes. Here’s a list of resources to keep handy. I’ve used most of them at one time or another and am looking forward to checking out others I haven’t tried.
If your favorite book, podcast, or video isn’t listed, please share it in the comments!
My goal for this month is to complete and revise a middle grade novel I have been pegging away at for several years on NaNoWriMo. To that end, I am compiling a list of agents to research. During 2012, I attended four writer’s conferences and met a number of wonderful author’s representatives. I am keeping track of them and have several favorites. I know from past experience with publishers, however, that first contacts do not always work out, so I am expanding my research online.
This morning, I found this helpful list from earlier this year.
