Congratulations to Shutta’s Scholarship Winners!

Congratulations to Shutta’s Scholarship Winners!

Congrats go out to Betsy McKee Williams and Meline Scheidel, who have BOTH won scholarships to the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators’ Winter Conference in NY! One person has won my scholarship, plus transportation from the Mich-Chapter. And because we had so many entrants this year the local chapter also opted to fund another person. Wow! Two!

What fun to be able to help folks along the path.

I’ll be moderating a wonderfully diverse panel of children’s novelists at Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, May 3 at 7pm. The event is free. Jean Alicia Elster, Ruth Behar and Jack Cheng will talk about writing their middle-grade novels. We’d love to see you all there! Please spread the word! Thanks!
