Dec 15, 2023

Online event

Join us for our end of year social, mentor text recommendations and our writing/ illustration challenge on the theme of dragons.

It’s the season of gift giving, get-togethers and a time for celebration and reflection. Join us online, December 15th, to share books, creative ideas around the theme of 'dragons' and to wrap up the year with friends and fellow creatives.


What to bring:

A book (Picture Book, Early Reader, Middle Grade, Young Adult), published within the last 10 years. The book can be a mentor text, one that you find notable for its craft or one that you have fallen in love with and would like to recommend to others. Share with us a brief summary of the book and how it has helped you or what was craft noteworthy! It might be the perfect stocking filler.

Illustration and writing prompt – as we move toward 2024, we will be winging our way into the Year of the Dragon. We would love you to share your creativity with us around the theme of 'Dragons'. Create/ share an illustration and/or a short piece of writing on this theme.

‘Tidings of comfort and joy’ – as this is a wrap-up event for the year we’d like to take some time to reflect on and celebrate everyone’s accomplishments in 2023 and share creative goals and hopes for 2024. Bring your favorite drinks and snacks and join us in a toast.
