Cynthea Liu's Library Lovin' Challenge? If not, get on over there! Cynthea is donating 10 cents up to $100 to the Briarglen Elementary School Library. If we can get up to 1000 comments, she'll double it! You don't even have to say anything intelligent (unless you want to). Just say something - it's that easy!
She is also running a really fun contest called Red Light Green Light that correlates with the Library Lovin' Challenge. It's really awesome and quite ingenious. RLGL will only move to the next round if we can get 400 comments by Sunday (one per person), 05/03/09, and to keep it going we've gotta keep the comments coming in. So spread the word and get in on the fun - it benefits the Briarglen Elementary School Library and can benefit your writing, too!
And that's not all I have to say about Ms. Liu. Have you checked out her web site for kidlit writers? Writing for Children and Teens? She has AMAZING posts, contests, critiques, etc. Just look at this list of top articles. She even has a Crash Course and book. I've spent quite a bit of time reading through a bunch of her articles and it's been worth every second.
Check it out and please spread the word. Thanks!
