Everybody, please go check out the We Need Diverse Books fund-raising campaign. Lots of good information over there about WNDB, which is dedicated to advocating and supporting non-majority narratives in children’s literature. If you can, contribute; if you can’t, consider passing on the news to someone else. Some of the prizes for contributing are pretty nifty: for writers, “Bypass the Query Queue” — one pass to jump to the front line of an agent’s inbox for a PB, MG, or YA manuscript. Another one for writers: an agent critique (MG and YA). For art lovers: original art by Cindy Pon, and let me tell you, I would be jumping on that. Go check it out!
