Available: Virtual Mentors for Children's Book Authors

If you're a writer of children's and YA books and a "person of color" (Gosh, how I hate race-related jargon ... nothing seems just right, ever) looking to improve your craft and learn more about the children's publishing industry, you may apply to be mentored for free by established writers through the newly-launched Patchwork Collective. This brilliant effort is spearheaded by my dear friend Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, author of 8th GRADE SUPERZERO, one of my favorite new books.
