We are going to challenge our own KidLit College 2018 Membership right now.

Is it worth it — or is it a whole lot of nonsense?

It's easy to tout that a membership can make your writing year fabulous because we all know that tuning in to one event or one course can enlighten our writing and make it glisten for acquiring editors and agents. But, what we've done at KIDLIT COLLEGE is take this concept and #KLCblowitup!

We wanted to not just create a class that lasts a week or even 8 weeks. We wanted to create a group of writers, a community of writers that offers so much for writers it would be impossible to pass up.

Why register for a webinar plus submission option when you can sign up for 12 webinars with 12 webinar submissions? We wanted to think like Texans in this category: Go big or go home!

Yes. That alone should make you run to click that REGISTER NOW button.

But this just out today:

Our members today will be automatically registered for our next webinar event: PEELING BACK PICTURE BOOKS with Julie Bliven (and you can register here: <https://events.genndi.com/register/169105139238472...>) and they will be offered the opportunity to submit to her following this event.

AND, if that is not all. Today our members will be submitting their first page FREE for Julie's upcoming FIRST PAGE EXPERT REVIEW webinar on Feb 15th for a chance for FIVE LUCKY MEMBERS to win a FREE seat and FREE first page critique in her during our LIVE event.

Beyond our 12 Webinar, 12 Submissions, your membership ALSO includes:

  • 10% off KLC Events: Crit-N-Chats, Courses, and other events.
  • Entry in our SECRET FACEBOOK group
  • Associate options to earn back for referring your friends

Do you think a KidLit College Membership is worth it?

Publishing shows that craft learning beyond the picture book form is needed now. So stretch your writing with us and see where your writing can go well into 2018.


So, let's propose a NEW CONTEST just to make things fun.

FIVE random writers or writer-illustrators who register for our NEW FULL KIDLIT COLLEGE MEMBERSHIP 2018 by Midnight tonight will WIN a FREE seat in my PACING YOUR PLOT TO PUBLISHED Class, which serves up the many tools that will help you pace-write your manuscript—any manuscript from PB to YA—strong. We will draw random winners and announce them tomorrow.
