The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

very-inspiring-blogger-award-1 (281x179)Recently children’s book author Lauri Fortino gave Sub It Club the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! We couldn’t be more pleased because inspiring all of you writers and illustrators out there to submit your very best work the very best you can is what we love to do.

The award rules:

  • Display the award on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers, link to them, and notify them about their nominations

(I completely understand that these are busy people I am giving a shoutout to for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and don’t expect anyone to participate. I am passing on the award to them to say thank you for the inspiration!)

Okay, 7 things about Sub It Club:

  • Sub It Club is international. We are thrilled to have members from around the world who illustrate and/or write in a wide range of genres.
  • We love love love supporting writers and illustrators, agents and editors. You are our people!
  • The membership in our Sub It Club support group ranges from those who are just learning to submit their work to those who are agented, published, and quite experienced with submissions. We are so happy to have people supporting each other throughout the submission process. Our members make the group a great place to be!
  • It is our sincerest hope that writers and illustrators work to create their best work possible and submit it well. We want all Sub It Club members to become pros at making their submissions shine!
  • We believe that while conferences and classes can be a great thing, you don’t have to spend money to learn how to write, illustrate, polish, and submit your work. There is tons of information right at your fingertips. (You’ll see the tip of the iceberg when we get to our awards!)
  • Sub It Club receives a large number of requests via our various social media and through email every day. We love getting all of your emails and notes! We do wish we would get more emails from people wanting to share submission stories, query letters, and the like. There just isn’t enough time in the day to chase everything down!
  • As for your Partners in Submission, Heather has never met Dana or Lisha in real life.  Dana and Lisha did get to meet at an SCBWI-LA conference once and Heather was very jealous! Heather lives on a mountaintop in Washington State, Dana lives in France, and Lisha lives in Kansas so it is a little tough to get together.

Now for our Very Inspiring Blogger Awards:

Writers Helping Writers (and Illustrators Too!)

Especially for Illustrators!

  • Guiseppe Castellano’s #Arttips blog is new, but he is a wealth of information for illustrators. A must follow! As a picture book author I love following his blog too. I learn a lot!

Agent Blogs that Inspire Submitting Your Work Well!

Blogs of Warning!

  • The Writer Beware blog will inspire you to do your research before submitting.
  • Slush Pile Hell–it might not sound inspiring but if you read through some posts you will certainly be inspired to not make the mistakes some of these queriers made.

And the list could go on!
