Once again we want to start you off on good footing and give you a preview of what is to come, in terms of guest bloggers, AND other great Summer School Events like our #30mdares and upcoming Webinars. Here we go!
Class Schedule for Week 3
Webinars: All Webinars are Scheduled for 9:00 pm EST
You must be registered for Kidlit Summer School to participate in the webinars. If you haven’t registered for summer school, and still want to, click on REGISTRATION in the navigation bar above (under the big eraser). As before, if you cannot attend the Webinars live, there will be recordings made available to registered students of Summer School. Yet another reason to make sure your registration is current!
Monday, August 4th
Our next Webinar will be on August 4! There is a special post all about this webinar. Click HERE to see the participating faculty, and leave a comment ON THAT POST to ask questions. If you haven’t registered for the Webinar, click HERE to fill out the three-blank form.
The August 11 webinar is the extra webinar we promised for pre-registered students. Agent Susan Hawk of The Bent Agency will be our special guest and she will be giving feedback on the participants pitches. You will have a chance to enter your 50 word pitch when you register. We will go through as many pitches as we have time for! If you are a Kidlit Summer School student who pre-registered, check your email for the instructions on how to register for this webinar. (You do not have to submit a pitch in order to watch the webinar.)
The August 13 webinar is for everyone and our special guest will be editor Amy Cloud of Aladdin/Simon and Schuster. Amy will be giving feedback on first pages. We are so excited about our special guests and we hope you are too! Instructions for how to submit first pages will be given later this week, but you can go ahead and register for this webinar now by clicking HERE.
The Facebook Group
A quick reminder: some of you are still trying to get into the Facebook group (and why wouldn’t you? We’re having so much fun there!). If you have registered for Kidlit Summer School, have asked to be added to the FB group, and did not get added within a few hours, it may be because your FB name did not match up with your registration name. Please send us an email at nerdychickswrite(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject line FB group and include the email address you used to register for Summer School. We’ll get it sorted out!
