Just letting you know about this opportunity through the Children’s Book Academy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the last course I did with Mira Riseberg and she puts some wonderful teams together to deliver inspiration and practical skills.
The Rafael Lopez and Pat Cummings Merit Scholarships are open until August 27th
For the Craft and Business of Illustrating Children’s Picture Books
The Children’s Book Academy offers merit scholarships for writers and illustrators who are currently underrepresented in the children’s publishing industry, perhaps because of colour or disability, and other forms of diversity underrepresented.
Here’s what you do:
1. Using your funnest or most lyrical language, tell us why you want this scholarship and what you have to offer kids
2. Describe how you meet our scholarship criteria
3. Include your website if you have one
4. Talk about how you are going to help your fellow students
5. Talk about how you are going to share about the course so that we can stay in business
6. Tell us something lovely about yourself
