  1. Hi Katie,

    I found your blog looking for other children’s writers. I’m surprised how few bloggers there are in Blogger that included children’s writing in their interests. Anyway, I too enjoy entering the Highlights Fiction Contest. I entered 5 years in a row, until last year when I was busy preparing aan application for a SCBWI grant. No luck yet.

    If you get a chance, stop by my deserted writing blog entitled Brianwoods and say hello.

    Ken
