So I am a mentor, picture book category, for FicFest 2017. I applied because I thought the contest this year was great — I got some wonderful feedback from the agents who requested my manuscript. Now I’m in pay-it-forward mode and excited about the idea of helping other writers.
(I’m told I need to name an assistant. I’m sort of stumped on this. If anyone’s interested, please ping me. I’m nice, I swear.)
I’ll be sharing further updates about FicFest both here and on Twitter, @mdcroft, where I also make fun of typos on packaging and occasionally post links to my day-job writing. Best of luck to all those who enter!
