This year, there is no bidding. Only discounted “BUY IT NOW” options to make things move faster and this will also allow me to mail items as they sell, instead of trying to do it all at once, after the auction. In past auctions, most people waited to bid on the last day and this made the mailing process overwhelming.
Many thanks to all the generous donors and to all who purchase items in support of our rhyming efforts!
This year’s event should be less time consuming than previous years. There are 16 days to read and comment for writers. Each blogger will share information on how to write professional rhyming manuscripts.
Rhyme often gets a negative reaction from editors and agents
because it’s frequently done SO poorly.
This event will help you learn how to write what they
are looking for…quality rhyming picture books!
Rhyme Time each Wednesday is for parents, teachers, librarians and…kids
PLEASE share these links with teachers, librarians and parents!
We have many of the Top 20 Best in Rhyme Award authors’s guest blogging as well as a few others. The topics will cover how to write professional rhyming manuscripts that editors will love. The blogger calendar is coming soon!
I have also added a fun activity for kids on Wednesdays called RHYME TIME. This is a day off for those participating in the blog challenge. I know we are busy trying to write, so this gives everyone a chance to catch up, plus it gives me a day to bring families to the event. The reason we write is for kids, so my hope is that this will continue to foster the love of RPBs as time goes on. I will share links to author websites and Amazon to hopefully boost sales too.
It’s really a win win!
There will still be daily prizes awarded to participants who read and comment on the blog posts. Watch for the blogger calendar and prize calendars coming soon.
Yes, we will still offer rhyming critique groups but not until after the event ends. I will have a place to sign up in the Rhyme Revolution Facebook Group and then divide the groups in May.
Registration for Rhyme Revolution runs from March 27th -April 10th. You must be registered and comment on daily posts to be eligible for a prize. Unfortunately, I am not able to send prizes to those outside the Continental U.S. due to postage expenses.
In case you missed it, we awarded The Best in Rhyme Award last month in New York City at the KidLitTV Studio. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to The Best in Rhyme Committee for their time and dedication to this award. Also, many thanks to Julie Gribble and KidLitTV for their continued support of what we do!
