You're Invited to (12x12 in 2012) Picture Book Writing Challenge

Dear Picture Book Author 

You are invited to:  Complete a picture book text each month during 2012. This is not a submission ready piece but a full first draft including beginning, middle, and end. 

When: Each month from January 2012 to December 2012.

Where: Write Up My Life Blog courtesy of children's author Julie Hedlund.

Why: This is a fabulous opportunity for picture book writers to get their creative juices flowing, stay motivated, learn from guest blog posts, win prizes, connect to other writers, and write 12 picture book texts at the end of 12 months. What more could you want?

R.S.V.P: January 29, 2012. To be eligible for prizes you must have signed up by this date.

From: Julie Hedlund

I look forward to seeing you there!

Hi Beth Cregan and Beth Stilborn. The 12x12 challenge is such a great motivator to write a picture book text every month. I have lots of beginnings of PB's so I'm looking forward to committing to writing a whole draft.
