For the past six months, I’ve been lucky enough to a mentee for the SCBWI 2018 Mentorship Program. This program has proved to be an extraordinary opportunity. I’ve been able to work with kids lit author Lois Brandt to refine two manuscripts and received some invaluable coaching on writing query letters. I really can’t recommend this program enough!
When I was selected for this program, I was thrilled to hear that I would be working with Lois Brandt as my mentor. She is the author of “Maddie’s Kitchen” a gorgeous children’s picture book tackling childhood hunger in schools as seen through the eyes of two best friends.
It’s an inspiring and conversation-provoking picture book for your bookshelf. Grab yourself a copy at your favorite local bookstore or on Amazon.
As the mentorship wraps up, I’m even get a firm kick up the butt to start submissions. So don’t be surprised if ZOE THE PUNK ROCK UNICORN AND HER IMAGINARY FRIENDS or TEARS FOR LADYBUG lands in your query inbox soon!
