Hi! Please mark your calendars… the 6th annual NATIONAL PICTURE BOOK WRITING WEEK (AKA “NaPiBoWriWee”) will take place May 1-7, 2014.
For the past five years, NAPIBOWRIWEE has celebrated the art and craft of writing picture books by challenging writers to attempt to write 7 picture books in 7 days. We feature fun Q&A blogs with guest authors plus lots of fun prizes and souvenirs. The goal of NAPIBOWRIWEE is to encourage writers to fight procrastination by trying to write AND finish a first draft of a picture book every single day for seven straight days. You are allowed to brainstorm, research, and outline your picture books all year-long until May 1st, when you are to write full drafts of each picture book through May 7th.

In addition, we have souvenirs available at our NAPIBOWRIWEE 2013 store, including coffee mugs & travel mugs, journals, T-shirts, and tote/beach bags! Please visit our store here:
We will debut a NEW store for 2014 in early Spring 2014, so please stay tuned for that.
