We hope The Mitten blog is read and shared by book lovers far and wide, but at this time we’re only accepting content from SCBWI-MI members.

SCBWI-MI members are encouraged to submit guest blog posts. What are we looking for?
  • Success stories
  • Tips on any aspect of the publishing process – writing, illustrating, promotion, time management, etc.
  • Agent/editor interviews
  • Photos, personal impressions, and brief overviews of events, such as conferences, meet-ups, book signings, book clubs, festivals, etc.
  • Reviews of books on craft
We’re also looking for contributions for our ongoing features:
  • Ask Frida Pennabook: Sometimes it's helpful to tap into the expertise of a fellow writer or artist. Got a question? Need advice? Just ask Frida.
  • Hugs and Hurrahs: We want to trumpet your good news! Send 1-3 sentences about your accomplishment to Patti Richards at pgwrites5@gmail.com. We love to include photos and art, too.
Do you have an idea for a blog post or a new feature?  We’d love to hear it!
