In preparing our legendary gift ideas post (coming soon!), we also thought it’d be fun to include some great freelance artists that you can commission for yourself (or a friend) — which, by the by, makes a fabulous present. But as with our subscription boxes, we quickly got carried away. So we’re splitting this post […]
Subscription boxes are The Thing, and we here at WriteOnCon are not immune to the appeal. Far from it. Faaaaaar from it. So when we started putting together a blog post for holiday gifts, we decided to include a few book boxes. But, um… things got out of hand. So we’re just gonna give them […]
Update: WE MADE IT! We’ve reached our first goal of $8000, and we cannot thank you guys enough! You are awesome! But that’s not the end of this campaign! Not by a loooong shot. This year, we’ve got several great stretch goals set up (and some additional ideas, should things go even crazier than expected). Up […]
For readers, the relationship between books and Hollywood is definitely complicated. Whenever we hear that one of our favorite books is being made into a film, we can’t help but feel conflicted. I mean, nobody wants to relive the trauma of the Mike Meyers The Cat in the Hat amirite? There have been some serious […]
Sweater season. Pumpkin spice. Trees turning. On-coming darkness. Mid-terms. Existential crises. Tractor rides. Candy. Autumn is here, and if you’re in need of a good book for the last half of October, you’re in luck! From the truly terrifying to the pleasantly spooky, these books are great to read with a hot cuppa.
If you love kidlit as much as we do here at WriteOnCon, you’ve likely toyed with the idea of writing your own kidlit stories. Maybe you’ve even gone so far as to write or publish a book. But writing kidlit isn’t the only way you can love and support the industry. Today, let’s talk about […]
Writing and good music go hand in hand for the vast majority of us authors. Here’s a list with some of the best places to discover, organize, and enjoy your favorite writing music. But first, let’s take a moment of silence to remember Grooveshark. R.I.P. Disclaimer: I’m not an Apple product user, so I can’t […]
If you’re here, you probably know what it’s like to have daydreams (and day-nightmares?) about brainstorming, writing, revising, querying, submitting, signing, selling, editing, and publishing your kidlit book. We’re pretty sure all you guys can relate to these stages of kidlit writer insanity… 1. The Idea 2. Daydreaming 3. Brainstorming 4. […]
If you’re looking into WriteOnCon and our fabulous kidlit conference (*cough* February 9-11, 2018 *cough*), you probably have a basic knowledge/sixth sense about the age ranges and genres contained within this wonderful catch-all. But we can’t deny it: Kidlit has a lot packed into that simple word. In fact, different people often define these different […]
We made a special, special quiz just for you guys: The puppy prompt quiz. For your viewing pleasure, we present puppies of many breeds and types. They are all beautiful in their own way, but we know there’s a couple calling you in particular. Pick the puppy, get a story prompt! Pretty straightforward, really. Let […]
