Hip Hip Horray!

by Hannah Holt »


Today I learned I made the finals for the Barbara Karlin grant. It’s the picture book WIP grant awarded annually by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

Hip hip hooray! I made the top 14 and earned a letter of merit for my rhyming picture book text, Moon Cake.

Here are the other winners. Congratulations everyone!

    Wow Hannah – congratulations!! That is wonderful news. Are you going to be at the RMC-SCBWI conference in Sept.?

  2. Hannah

    I wasn’t planning on going this year since my life has been so crazy. However, this award is making me reconsider. Maybe I’ll see you there. The conference is always tons of fun, and it’d be great to see you again!

    Oh Hannah – congratulations! What will you be doing with the grant? Looking forward to seeing new and exciting things!
