BLOG BREAK Celebration Time

Nick Cross presents his fortnightly selection of must-read SCBWI-BI member blogs.

Catherine Friess's Story Snug blog has been going for an incredible 9 years! In this celebratory article, she discusses all the great posts and reviews on the site over the last year, with lots of SCBWI-BI authors highlighted.

Frances Tosdevin's article for My Book Corner investigates picture books about books, which is perfect fodder for this blog about blog posts!

Why are there so many picture books about Christmas? Chitra Soundar invites us to think about all the other festivals and celebrations we could write about.

Pete Frederick has a dark secret - he's a storyholic. Who knew that reading picture books could lead to a life of shame and regret?

Finally, if you're here reading this, you may not need too much persuading about the value of being a SCBWI member. But for those who are still undecided, check out Natasha Biebow's Picture Book Den post all about the history and glories of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
