If you are a picture book writer, you may be interested in this exciting community. It isn’t free, but it isn’t expensive either, and it offers the benefits of support, motivation, and information. I am going to sign up!
If you are interested in writing children’s books and you live on Colorado’s Front Range, consider attending the fall conference of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. More information about the conference (this Saturday and Sunday) and the organization can be found by clicking on the “Home” link below.
At the southern tip of the historic island is a village with a beautiful park and a spectacular lighthouse.
