February #FirstDraftFriday is a Go!

Are you swimming in ideas from StoryStorm? Looking to dive into Julie Hedlund's 12x12 Picture Book Challenge? Ready to make a splash writing a new manuscript?

If you answered yes to any of these (or even if not but you want a little push!), join us on Friday, Feb. 5, 2021, for #FirstDraftFriday.

Norene Paulson will be our guest author and offering a critique for one lucky winner!

Check out my blog on Feb. 5 for inspiration from Norene, and then get to work writing a new picture book draft anytime between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (Adjust forward or backward for your time zone if needed, BUT you MUST enter by 8 p.m. ET to be eligible for the critique.)

Once your draft is done, enter for a chance at a free critique from Norene by:

  1. Following both me and Norene on Twitter (@HollieWolverton and @NorenePaulson) - feel free to do this today, right now, any time before 8 p.m. ET on Feb. 5, 2021.

  2. Commenting on my Feb. 5, 2021 #FirstDraftFriday blog post, saying you completed a PB draft.

Norene’s second picture book entitled WHAT'S SILLY HAIR DAY WITH NO HAIR?, illustrations by Camila Carrossine, is coming out March 1 from Albert Whitman. Her debut, BENNY'S TRUE COLORS, with illustrations by Anne Passchier, came out in November from Imprint/Macmillan.

Hope you can jump in on the fun!
