Fingers Crossed (at least till August 15th)
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).
