Picture Books (PB) / Re: Formatting verse for picture book
« Last post by Debbie Vilardi on Yesterday at 06:36 PM »
Verse can be left justified. Verses are used as paragraphs. Do not use capital letters unless grammar calls for it. So:

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
how I wonder what you are
up above a world so high
like a diamond in the sky.

Often the line spacing is 1.5 or single spaced,  instead of double, with and extra line break between verses.

I would be interested in a crit group. I have completed my first manuscript. How does this work?

Picture Books (PB) / Formatting verse for picture book
« Last post by d-dzien on October 15, 2021, 08:33 PM »
Hi all, first time board user so apologies in advance if this topic has been covered.  I am formatting a picture book in verse.  I have found that I should be indenting each line with one tab.  My question is, if the line carries over into the next line , should it be indented further?  Should it stay in line with the rest of the verse?  Or maybe should it not be indented?  Any help is appreciated!!!

My experience has been that grant announcements are often delayed.

Contests and Challenges / SCBWI WIP & Cushman Grant announcements

Does anyone know if results of the WIP award have delayed?  The guidelines page mentioned winners would be announced in early October.  I was also curious to know if the Cushman grant is typically announced at the same time.
Thanks
