Once the last of my Christmas visitors have left I will be able to get down and back into my writing and drawing. Polishing, revising and rewriting manuscripts. Some I have recently received back from professional editors and manuscript assessors, and now have lots to read and think about.
Once I feel my many stories are up to scratch they will be submitted to a variety of competitions, publishing houses and critique groups.
Here are some things you might like to participate in:
Manuscript Monday with Pan Macmillan Australia
January Contest with QueryTracker.net blog
Children’s & Young Adult Writers and Illustrator’s Contest with CYA Conference
Frustrated Writers 2012 with the The Children’s Book Council of Australia
Don’t forget to join some groups yourself!
