I’ve been writing for kids since I was a child myself. I “published” my first book at 6 by simply stapling sheets of paper where I wrote a story and drew scribbles. I gave copies of it to a few neighbors and said that in several years I would bring them a “real” book.
Since then I’ve been passionate about writing. I am proud to be an active member of SCBWI(Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). This organization helped me to learn more about the craft through conferences and support of writers’ cohort I’ve become a part of. I am tremendously happy I took courses on Writing for Children at StoryStudio Chicago under a mentorship of Juliet Bond. And, of course, volunteering as a writing coach at Open Books Chicago is a great opportunity for me to spend time with my potential readers.
Now I’m facing all joys of writer’s life: revisions, submissions, praying for a good luck;)
I decided to launch this blog to share information about an amazing world of children’s literature with fellow writers and to inspire someone to start that first page.
