Hello Picture Book Lovers,
It’s that time of year again. Time to dust off your picture book work-in-progress, buff it to a fine shine, and submit it in the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories competition!
Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories is a program that focuses on getting high quality, award-winning books in the hands of children. The program also encourages parents and children to savor the joys of reading together. Did you know that over the past 9 years since the program began, Cheerios has given away 50 million+ children’s books?
I know this sounds like a plug for Cheerios, but it isn’t; it’s a plug for hopeful picture book writers. If you have a manuscript that has been laying around, or if you have an idea for one, why not enter it into the Cheerios competition? You never know what might happen.
Here’s the link. Be sure to read ALL the rules and regulations before entering. The deadline is July 15, 2011, so you have time…but HURRY!
Best wishes and happy writing,
