North Central Children’s Writers & Illustrators meeting Saturday was a success. As we learn we are having fun and making friends. We critiqued, asked questions and added helpful comments. Each member has knowledge to share. I love it!

Handouts we glanced over, asked questions and again made comments.
1. What to look for when critiquing.
2. Read & dismantle the type of book you want to write.
3. When Is Your Narrator? Picking the Right Tense/Be the Story. By Timothy King
4. Writers and Illustrators Guidelines (How to read The Children’s Writers Market Book.)
5. Writing or/and creating a “rebus” for Highlights For Children magazine.
6. Old copies of the SCBWI Bulletin.
