Coming up March 18, we (that's Eileen Robinson and I of Kid's Book Revisions) are giving a free webinar that will provide some insights into how picture book stories work, and give you a tool to use to assess your own.

We announced it a few days ago, and the live event filled up in 12 hours, but you can sign up to get access to the recording, and if there's enough interest, we may put on a repeat performance. More information and links to register here. I hope you can make it!

This free webinar stands alone, but in the spirit of full disclosure: it also serves as a preview of KBR's "Revising and Re-Imagining Your Picture Book Manuscript," a webinar series we are giving starting at the end of April.

You were sold out before I even saw the e-mail invite from Facebook. I'll be watching the recording though. Thanks to you and Eileen for doing this.

Debbie, we have a mailing list that you can sign up for on our website. We tend to announce events first to the mailing list, so get on the mailing list if you want to hear first! We then start spreading the news via Facebook and Twitter...

Glad you liked it, Marianne! I started a thread about the 6-session course, "Revising and Re-Imagining Your Picture Book Manuscript," here: https://www.scbwi.org/boards/index.php?topic=76055.0
