Shutta’s Answer to the Winter Doldrums—SCBWI conference scholarship

Shutta’s Answer to the Winter Doldrums—SCBWI conference scholarship

NYinwinter

 

Perk up your winter with a trip to the Big Apple! I am again offering to fund one full tuition to the SCBWI Winter conference in NY for one Michigan member. And our local MI-SCBWI will also cover the cost of airfare. What could be better than that? Check out the application and requirements at the MI-SCBWI site.  If it all sounds wonderful–and it is–click here for the application.

 

Why do I do this? It is my way of saying “thank you” to one of the best organizations for writers of children’s books. Thank you for the help and support I’ve been afforded over the years, and for the camaraderie and good times.

 

Now—get writing!

In honor of my newest book’s launch—and the start of beach season . . .  here’s a little trailer ya’ll might enjoy!

 

Patrice Barton’s art is sweet and fun at the same time. What a talent . . . and drawing babies is not easy! They are always on the move and their round faces do not have all the “character” lines and hollows we accumulate as we age.

 

Below is the Trailer. I suggest you click on the angled brackets in the lower right corner and watch it full screen with the audio up. (The music is fun, too!)
