A while ago, I posted about the series that I wrote Write Your Own Poetry for being nominated for an award from the Association of Educational Publishers. My editor emailed me last week to say that the series won!
The Write Your Own series from Compass Point Books won the Distinguished Achievement Award in the Reading and Language Instruction for Grades 6-8. Yea! Extra congratulations to Natalie Rosinsky, who wrote 7 of the 8 titles.
If you’re interested in learning how to get into writing for the educational market, I’ll be teaching in two different formats soon.
On July 27, I’ll be teaching an all-day workshop at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. This in-person workshop is a look at the educational market, what it’s like to write for them, and how to put together an introductory packet to start sending to publishers.
From July 22 to August 22, I’ll be teaching my online workshop, Writing Children’s Nonfiction Book for the Educational Market. This intense online workshop walks you through the entire process, so that at the end of the month, you are ready to start sending out packets to educational publishers. You can get all the details, see student comments, etc. here.
