Just like last week, we want to start you off on good footing and give you a preview of what is to come, not just in terms of guest bloggers, but other great Summer School Events like out #30mdares and upcoming Webinars. Let’s get started!
Pop Quiz: Look for a Pop Quiz on the blog at the end of the day. (We know pop quizzes aren’t supposed to be announced… we’re just trying to be extra nice.)
The Facebook Group
A quick reminder: some of you are still trying to get into the Facebook group (and why wouldn’t you? We’re having so much fun there!). If you have registered for Kidlit Summer School, have asked to be added to the FB group, and did not get added within a day, it may be because your FB name did not match up with your registration name. If this is the case, one of us will have sent you a message via FB. Sometimes these messages end up in the OTHER folder. Please check this folder to see if you have heard from one of us and answer any messages there. This will help us sort things out.
Class Schedule for Week 2:
Our next Webinar will be on July 27 at 8pm EST. Registration for this event closed at 6am this morning. If you registered for this webinar with agents Sean MccCarthy and Marie Lamba and cannot attend it live, there will be a recording made available to you. We have several more great webinars lined up, so look for details on the blog and in your emails! For more information about the Webinars, please refer to the FAQ page in the navigation bar above.
If you are having email issues, please visit the FAQ page before contacting us with a question. We have found that almost all glitches thus far are user or server error. If you have tried everything else and still cannot get your email to work, contact a member of the Kidlit Summer School Board. We are working hard on this and other aspects of Summer School, so please know that it may be up to five business days before you hear back from us. Look for your next email tonight or tomorrow morning.
Inspired by this nerdy chick that artist Mike Ciccotello drew on a coffee cup and tweeted to Kami and Sudipta, we’ve decided to run an art contest this year as part of Kidlit Summer School! The winners will be picked by an industry professional and be added to our cafe press store! Also, they will receive a prize pack with their own design on it. The rules:
1. Draw a Nerdy Chick.
2. Tweet the image to @leezaworks with the hashtag #NerdyChicksDraw AND/OR share on our Facebook Group page with the same hashtag.
3. Do this before the final day of Kidlit Summer School!
How easy is that? We look forward to seeing the chicks all over social media! (Psssst – Mike, you’re already one of the winners!)
