CREATING KIDS’ AND YA BOOKS

March Meeting – Creative Wisdom

What do you get when you cram a bunch of children’s book creators into a zoom meeting?

A few collective nouns suggested at tripfiction include a chattering of authors, a draft of authors and an imagination of authors.

 

However, when writers and illustrators at Write Links join forces, we get ‘a wisdom of authors.’

At some of our Write Links meetings, we bring our questions regarding writing, publishing, submitting, competitions, conferences, contracts, procrastination, social media; anything writerly related!

Experience is imparted, knowledge is shared, and every member is better equipped to continue on their writing and/or illustrating journey.

Below are all the links shared as we discussed and dissected a variety of topics at our March meeting.
