Submissions


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. We want to celebrate and learn from your success.
  • 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 the Editor: Do you have a question about publishing/getting published? Katherine Gibson is here to help! Katherine is an editor at Zonderkidz Publishing in Grand Rapids, a graduate of the Denver Publishing Institute, and she spent five years working at Eerdmans Books for Young Readers. Email your questions to kristinbartleylenz@gmail.com, and I'll pass them along to Katherine.
  • Hugs and Hurrahs: We want to trumpet your good news! Send 1-3 sentences about your accomplishment to Sarah LoCascio at sarah.prusoff.locascio@gmail.com. We love to include photos and art, too.
  • Book Birthdays: Email our PAL Coordinator Lauren Nyquist at laurennyquist@gmail.com if you have a new book being published. She'll interview you for our Book Birthday blog to help spread the word.
Do you have an idea for a blog post or a new feature?  We’d love to hear it!
