In July this year I was lucky enough to participate in the CYA Conference online once again.
This year my picture book manuscript was awarded third prize in the Primary section. For years I have been telling myself that I don’t know how to write picture books. I’m not a visual enough person etc etc. Therefore, in the middle of a totally chaotic year, it was pretty special to have my manuscript shortlisted.
I believe in this story and I love it. Watch this space. (Although, looking at the results page, reducing the word count of the title might be a good idea lol.)
Thank you to Tina and the team, and to the judges of the competition, for yet another wonderful conference experience.
