Would You Like a Query Critique from Me?

I blogged last week about jump-starting your writing resolutions with Julie Hedlund’s wonderful 12X12 in 2013 program for picture book authors, but here’s some further news that includes yours truly…

Next week, from January 23-25th, I’ll be offering FREE query critiques for members of the 12X12 in 2013 program. If you’re a children’s book author and you haven’t already signed up for 12X12, now’s the time to do so, since registration closes in just a few weeks. And if you do it this week, you’ll get access to my free query critique session AND a special offer to join the Children’s Book Hub for just $5 for the first month!

Here’s what Julie has to say about it from her blog:

“NYT bestselling, award-winning author Emma Walton Hamilton will conduct a multi-day query critique session, January
23-25, on the 12 x 12 Membership Forum. Little GOLDen Book and Shel SILVERstein members will be able to submit one
query for Emma’s review and comment, with LGB member queries taking priority if there is not enough time to get
through all the queries.

Those of you who have attended Emma’s similar sessions during WriteOnCon know how invaluable her feedback is and
how much you learn, even from her comments on others’ queries. But you have to be a 12 x 12 member, so sign up
today and don’t miss the chance to get your query in shipshape for submissions in 2013!

Emma is also offering a special deal for 12 x 12 members interested in joining the Children’s Book Hub. Details will
be provided next week on the Membership Forum!”

One Response to “Would You Like a Query Critique from Me?”
  1. I want to add my voice to say that having read your query critiques during WriteOnCon, they are insightful and to the point, and would be a tremendous help to any picture book writer working his or her way toward submission.

    I also want to say that 12×12 is an excellent venue for picture book writers and illustrators to network, bounce ideas off each other, and provide accountability for each other — and this year there is so much more, with the different levels providing some truly amazing opportunities.

    Finally, Children’s Book Hub full membership is of tremendous value, and I, for one, am eager to see what exciting things happen in the Hub this year!
