Registration is March 27 – April 10th. 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.
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 Rhyme Revolution 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 Rhyme Revolution 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.
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 Rhyme Revolution critique group?
Join a rhyming picture book critique group. I will organize the groups on the Rhyme Revolution Facebook page after the event ends. If you are looking for a rhyming critique group, join us there! A sign up list in available on the Facebook Group posts.
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 Rhyme Revolution?
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.
Rhyme Revolution 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.
I am focused on celebrating rhyming picture books published and waiting for readers! And this year, every Wednesday during RHYME TIME, I will be reading some RPBs from our Best in Rhyme Award Top 20 List as well.
