#PBdummy Wrap Party!

It's a wrap!

We've come to the end of our six-month picture book dummy challenge. Wendy and I have learned a lot, putting together the introductory posts and researching links. We've also had a great time discussing the highs and lows and, most of all, gaining inspiration from the fantastic community of kidlitart followers.

Whether or not you finished with a submission-worthy dummy, we hope you've had fun and been inspired, too, and that the experience of talking through the process has been a valuable one.

We've saved the best for last: the 15 pitches posted during Pitch Fest have been reviewed (favorably!) by Secret Agent; winners of the detailed dummy critiques will be announced during the #kidlitart chat on Thursday, June 30 (9 pm Eastern)!

Join us to congratulate your colleagues and share what you've learned on the #PBdummy train. And thanks to all for taking the journey with us!

  1. Oh, I really wish I could join you all for the wrap party, I would love to "hear" everyone's final thoughts. Unfortunately, that is 9am on Friday for me and I will be in the middle of teaching Chinese college students at an "Oral English Camp" in humidity you need a bathing suit for.

    I'll be sure to check in later and see what was said though. Since I wont get a chance to say it tomorrow, thank you putting this whole thing together and creating and great opportunity and creative push for us all!
