Fingers Crossed (at least till August 15th)

August 9, 2013

Well…I attended that free webinar (I can hardly turn down free).

Dr. Mira Reisburg of the Picture Book Academy provided quite a discussion and great instruction along with Maya Christina Gonzalez and Mark Gregory Mitchell . Just being there live, being able to ask questions and make comments with the many other writers who were present, was enriching.

Now she is hosting a contest for scholarships to her e-course The Craft and Business of Writing Picture Books.

There are many other writers who are perhaps more in need than I am. But in the last three months (1) a broken tooth thanks to a wayward raccoon, (2) a dear pygmy goat who had to have a c-section, and (3) hefty repairs to my wife’s zero-turn mower have really minimized my financial flexibility to pursue any intensive writing career opportunities such as this Craft and Business of Writing Picture Books e-Course.

I would love for this course to fill that void for me this fall.  I’ve had to decline a 2nd ICL course, Katie Davis’ Video Idiot Boot Camp, and had just told myself after this recent free webinar that I couldn’t afford this either. So I’ll hold my breath until August 15th.

Cross your fingers for me (at least until August 15th).
