Thanks for sharing.  I spent over an hour reading the mentor bios and looking up their work. I'll be applying, of course, but there's so much info and wisdom shared within those bios that I already feel like a winner!  I'd encourage everyone to check it out.

In addition to the Bios on the site, there will be mini interviews with each mentor that will start going out next week to get to know them a bit better too.

Writing With the Stars is a wonderful mentorship opportunity for writers AND illustrators! I am working on my application letters now and am blown away by these writing superstars and their incredible enthusiasm for this contest. Applying takes some dedicated prep work, but it is definitely worth it. GOOD LUCK to all who are applying!

Following this thread as I also applied. Yesterday, I was asked to sub two more pbs for review by one of the mentors ... anyone else? I'm wondering how many people ended up applying. Good luck!
