Week 3 #KidlitSummerSchool Schedule, Updates, Cool News and a GIVEAWAY

KLSS 2015 BadgeHello, Summer Schoolers! Week 2 has drawn to a close, and we are about to embark upon Week 3 of Kidlit Summer School 2015. Hope you are plotting away like mad, inspired Nerdy Chicks!

Just like the first two weeks, we want to give you a preview of what is to come in Week 3, and reminders for our other great Summer School Events like out #30mdares and upcoming Webinars, etc. Let’s get started!

Pop Quiz: Don’t forget we will post a Pop Quiz on the blog at the end of the day. (Just for fun!)

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 3:

Great posts heading your way. Check out this awesome guest blogger line-up!SS15week3


We have a couple 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.

Late Registration closes at the end of the day today, Sunday August 2nd – Tell your friends that there’s still time before the final bell rings!

Even though pre-registration and regular registration have both closed, you can still take part in Kidlit Summer School. Late registration is still open, so you can still sign up and get access to our password-protected writing exercises, to our Summer School webinars and recordings, and to the Facebook group, and you are still eligible to win any of the comment-related book giveaways on the daily blog posts. So you can still fully participate! You will not be eligible for prizes specified for Pre-Registration and Regular Registration.If you still need to register, please click HERE. Late Registration ends on Sunday, August 2. *Note that you passwords are sent out periodically, not the moment of registration, so you may need to wait until the next bulk email to receive one. Don’t worry, the exercises and all will still be there. 🙂

    When should I receive the link for the Webinar that I paid the $5. Did I miss it somehow?

    Enjoying hearing from successful authors on their different methods of plotting. Eventually, something will end up being the right one (or two) for me….for now, I’m still dog paddling!

    Kidlit Summer School has been absolutely amazing, ladies! Juli’s chick is adorable. And I have to tell ya—I would NOT want to be the judge for the drawing contest (I think I know who you are! 😉 ). I have a few favorites and don’t think I could decide!

    I’m now three weeks behind on summer school but done with all my deadlines. I have two day to catch up before I leave on vacation. I plan to get through all my lessons and be caught up before I go. Wish me luck and please keep the blog posts and exercise book up for as long as possible. I did finally watch the agent webinar. Nicely done. I’m looking forward to getting to week three while it’s still week three.

    You are all so fantastic for putting this course together! As I neither draw nor crochet, I’m throwing my hat in the ring to hopefully win the darling crocheted chick. She’d look awesome on my bright yellow bookshelves;)!
