On September 18th, in San Luis Obispo, I’ll be offering my very first day-long seminar on Children’s Literature. If you would like to attend you can register here. What I’d like to offer is an opportunity to win a free pass to the seminar (a $30 value) by subscribing to the blog. Or, if you’ve already subscribed to the blog, you can be entered to win the free pass by getting a friend to subscribe! For every 10 new subscriptions I’ll throw in an additional free pass which will increase your chances of winning. Now for those of you that live outside of a reasonable driving distance to San Luis Obispo, I will offer you the option of 5 CDs of my most recent presentations at the CHEA convention in July, or a free Genevieve Foster title. (See http://www.bfbooks.com for all available Genevieve Foster titles). Another additional option, if you live in the Southern California area you can win your pass to attend the upcoming literature training seminar there, which is slated to occur mid-October. So here’s what you need to do: if you’re already a subscriber, get a friend to sign up and both your name and your friend’s name will be entered into the drawing. This offer will be available through the end of August for the San Luis Obispo Seminar and through September for the Southern California Seminar. Be sure to let me know which contest you’d like to enter. Then leave a comment here with your email address (and your friend’s) and I will respond back to you confirming that I’ve entered you into the contest.
