In these last nine mini-lessons we’ve played our way to the page. Now you have a revised and ready story or poem and we can’t wait to read it. We’re so proud of you for the work you have done! Sharing your words can be scary sometimes, but be brave! When you share your writing with readers, you make a connection and give them the gift of your creativity and perspective.

You may be done, but hold your horses one more moment…There are a few things you should double check before submitting to the Inklings Book Contest. In this mini-lesson, Naomi will walk you through your final steps and show you just how to submit. Download the checklist below to get started. For the Inklings Book Contest, we’d also like your stories and poems to be in manuscript format. After you run through the checklist, take a minute to adjust your document format and you’ll be all set to go.

 

Alright, you’ve waited long enough…. Submit today!
