Finding Help for Japan (and For You, the Children’s Writer)

I’m not sure how much work I’ll get done this week. I’ll be busy hanging out at the Kidlit4Japan Benefit Auction.

The auction started today, and already I’ve found a few keepers I’m interested in. But I have to pace myself, for there’s sure to be keepers every day for the next couple weeks. Thanks to the awesome organizer and children’s author, Greg R. Fishbone, a TON of generous folks in the kidlit world have signed on their talents to benefit the children in Japan.

You can help these children by making a bid on any of the TONS of books, ARCS, critiques or other services offered. And really, you can help yourself as a writer if you bid on (and win) a critique. But you’ll have to raid your penny jar and maybe your friend’s piggy bank to afford a critique. It’ll be worth every penny, though, and go to a wonderful cause (besides yourself, I mean).

But if you don’t have enough to bid,  check out a SCBWI newsletter for helpful and free information. You can find my Southern Breeze region’s newsletter here. And a week or so ago, I came across Kite Tales, from the Southern California region, where you’ll find lots of swell interviews. Then send a prayer or two, instead.

Because you can make a difference in the world. Every. Little. Bit. Helps.
