The Children's Book Academy
« on: July 16, 2016, 09:31 AM »
I was ready to hang up my pens and pencils, stuff my overworked manuscripts in a drawer, and move on with my life. I gave it one last try with the Craft and Business of Writing Children's Books course by Dr. Mira Reisberg. She did more to restore my faith in myself and my writing than the other courses I had taken all put together. Thank you! Thank you Dr. Reisberg!  Now I have a polished manuscript, a query letter, and an interested editor! I can't say enough about this fantastic course!

I don't think a course or "teacher" can receive much higher praise then being responsible for restoring an artists faith in themselves! So happy for you Diana!

And then, ultimately, what better proof then this....
