Ways to Get Inspired by Lee and Low

Standard

I am a big fan of publisher Lee and Low.  Their unique and multi-cultural books inspire and remind me of my purpose as a writer for children.  I especially enjoy receiving their newsletter for authors and illustrators, always full of useful info and tidbits.  Here’s a snippet from last week’s letter which you can read in full by clicking here.

Here are three ways to get inspired as you set new goals for the year ahead:

  1. Read a book in a genre that’s completely different from the genres you usually read.
  2. Read some of the posts in author Nova Ren Suma’s greatTurning Points blog series, where authors answer the question, “What was your turning point as a writer?”
  3. Pick one author or illustrator whose work you’ve admired from afar and reach out to that person. Perhaps she or he may have just the right advice for you!
