Want to take a serious step to improve your writing? Check out The Institute For Writers:
I am currently enrolled, and I am almost done with my 9th assignment. There are 10 in all, and it takes about a year to complete. The course covers everything from writing for magazines, mechanics, submission basics, and much more. This month I am working on nonfiction articles for kid’s magazine markets. I love my instructor Sheila Wood Foard.
I’m so glad I took the leap to improve my writing. You have to provide a writing sample before you can enroll. You can learn more by clicking the link.
I also wanted to share with you another online group that I am a member of:
This group is for picture book writers. It is a supportive environment, and you can share your writing and get critiqued. Plus, they have online workshops that you can attend every month and replays.
Julie Hedlund is the founder and fearless leader. Through this organization, I also became aware of Picture Book Summit:
Every year in October, seasoned authors and illustrators give workshops. It’s all online, and you can partake in the awesome event in your pajamas.
This year’s superstar speakers were: Tomie dePaola, Carol Boston Weatherford, and Adam Rex.
