November Nurture Your Muse & Win a Free Copy of the CWIM.

November Nurture Your Muse & Win a Free Copy of the CWIM.

In honor of NaNoWriMo and PiBoIdMo I will be holding a drawing for a free copy of the newly revamped Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market  (CWIM) published by Writers Digest Books and edited by Chuck Sambuchino.

This giveaway is open to anyone who is a member of the Michigan Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator’s (SCBWI-MI).

You do not need to be doing NaNoWriMo or PiBoIdMo.

However you must do something special for your muse this month . . . whatever it is/was, write me (use the form below) and tell me what you did that was “special.”

And you must write me by midnight Dec 1, 2011.

I will use a random number generator to choose the winner who will be notified by Dec. 3, 2011. If you have not heard by that date if you have won, then you haven’t. I will post the name of the winner on my blog.

Here’s keeping my fingers crossed for all of you, and hoping you are feeding your various muses well!
