Another Commenting Challenge with a BIG Prize

TWT SOLSC Prize Image 2015 - V2 copyOur community of writers is a strong one.  It is built on the willingness of each of you to share your stories and comment on other writers’ blogs.  Our community would not survive without your comments.  This weekend, we aim to reward the readers in our community with our second Commenting Challenge.

The prize for this Commenting Challenge is donated by the Highlights Foundation.  The mission of the Highlights Foundation is to improve the quality of children’s literature by helping authors and illustrators hone their craft.


Kent Brown, executive director of the Highlights Foundation, is pleased to offer one of our writers the opportunity attend a Highlights Foundation workshop.  The prize will cover the tuition of any of the posted June, July, or August workshops, retreats or unworkshops (with the exception of any that are sold out or have an application process).  Meals and private lodging are included.  Complimentary shuttle service from nearby airports is also provided.
