And no… I’m not talking about Arnold Schwarzenegger! I’m talking about Brian Gehrlein – the host of #PBCRITIQUEFEST!
What is #PBCRITIQUEFEST you ask? It’s a HUGE one-time picture book critique giveaway! It is also a wonderful opportunity for kidlit creators to support one another by promoting each other’s work! So, are you an author or author/illustrator? Have a manuscript you want critiqued by those experienced in the biz? It’s not too late to get over to pbspotlight.com and get registered!
Last year, I was lucky enough to receive a critique from one of my favorite authors, Ame Dyckman! Her feedback on my story was wonderful and we spoke on the phone for close to two hours! A year later, and I’m still over the moon ecstatic that I got to speak with her.
It doesn’t look like Ame is back for the festivities this year (My guess is she is swamped with book releases!) But this year’s lineup of Authors, Author/Illustrators, and Agents that are offering critiques is impressive! I can only hope that I get to be one of the 31 lucky people to receive critiques!
