SCBWI Announces SPARK Award: Writerly Wednesday

This is big news, folks. Really big. 

Recently, SCBWI announced the SPARK award for non-traditionally published children's books. Can I get a, heck yeah! in the comments?

You can read more about it HERE. There are some rules, yes, but imagine the possibilities. :)

So, come on all of you, PB, MG, & YA writers out there who've taken on the brave feat of self-publishing, and go for it!

Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin.
