Yesterday, I opened my email and found a big surprise. I received a Yuyi Morales Merit Scholarship to attend the Children’s Picture Book Academy. Starting May 16th, I will spend five weeks learning about the craft and business of picture books. I am thrilled for this life changing opportunity.
I love writing children’s literature. I believe that kids deserve stories created by writers from all backgrounds. I want to publish stories for queer and transgender children, kids who are like me. I can’t wait to get started!
