BLOG BREAK Cosmic Competitions

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

Lu Hersey has a simple question for us: Is it really worth entering writing competitions?

Autumn is here (as one glance out of the window will confirm), so why not stay indoors with a warming drink and enjoy Catherine Friess's list of Favourite Autumn Picture Books.

And now a mammoth post (groan) from Sally Poyton as she blogs about her prehistoric animal obsession, and why recent news of mammoth cloning has got her rushing to submit her latest manuscript.

Finally, I've heard of some wacky places to have a writers' retreat, but in space??? Tracy Darnton does the thought experiment for us.

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.
