Picture Book Critique Fest 2021

Just passing on the word that #PBCritiqueFest 2021 is open for submissions! Fill out the form to enter to win critiques of your latest work-in-progress from industry professionals like:

Tara Lazar, Jemiscoe Chambers-Black, and Brian Lies!

(And many, many more!)

This event is hosted by the fearless Brian Gehrlein, who’s first picture book, “The Book of Rules,” will be releasing next month. It looks super cute and like a really fun read-aloud.

So, if you’re a picture book creator like me, I highly recommend throwing your name in the hat. Professional critiques have been such a help to me over the years. It’s always great to receive advice from people who are further along their journey than I am.

Good luck and keep on creating!
