RhyPiBoMo 2016 FAQ’s

When can I register for RhyPiBoMo 2016?

Registration is March 20 – April 8th. You MUST be registered and comment daily on each blog post to be eligible for prizes. If you miss registration, you can certainly still participate but you are not eligible for the prizes.

Where do I register to participate?


How do I get the RhyPiBoMo 2016 Badge?


How do I get the 2016 Guest Blogger Calendar?


What do I submit for this event?

The answer is nothing!  = ) I trust that you are participating in the daily challenges on your own and reading the blogs when you comment each day . The comment shows your participation. You do not send me anything!

How much does RhyPiBoMo cost?

Nothing! Just your time!

What if I can’t access my computer or am unable to participate one day?  Am I still allowed to comment for prizes?

If you read the blog posts and do the challenges listed on the pledge, even if you are catching up for the week, it’s absolutely fine!

You can do Sunday thru Saturday all on Saturday night, read the PBs and the poems, then comment for all 7 days. If you still have a halo over your head for honesty, then you will be eligible for the weeks prizes.

How do I join the RhyPiBoMo Facebook Group Page?

Go to Facebook and type RhyPiBoMo in the Search field. Request to join the group and I will add you as soon as possible.


What should I do to prepare for RhyPiBoMo?

Pull out your favorite rhyming picture books or start collecting them from the library. You will need one for each day in April. For suggestions, see the “FAVORITES” list on the RhyPiBoMo Facebook page under “FILES”

How do I join a RhyPiBoMo critique group?

Join a rhyming picture book critique group. Dawn Young will organize the groups on the RhyPiBoMo Facebook page after registration ends. If you are looking for a rhhyming crit group, join us there!

Can I participate even though I missed the registration dates?

Absolutely! You will not be eligible for prizes but I hope you will participate anyway!

Why do I need to register for RhyPiBoMo?

This encourages participation from the very beginning and a commitment to participate the whole month.  This also discourages people from commenting at the end of the month for the prizes without actually doing the work. This is an “On your honor system” but anyone who participates daily deserves the chance for a prize over someone who doesn’t. It also helps me know how many people are participating so I can plan accordingly for next year. I am able to see who comments daily and who doesn’t.

RhyPiBoMo Mission Statement:

My goal is to guide those aspiring to write rhyming picture books through the process of learning the craft and offering resources, lessons, writing prompts and the wisdom of experienced folks in the business to improve the reputation and quality of rhyming picture books for children.
