12 x 12 new badgeQuite a number of published, agented authors have been asking me lately whether they would benefit from joining 12 x 12. My response, without even a moment’s hesitation, is a resounding YES!

I think the question is stemming from the fact that the focus of the Little GOLDen Book level is on the opportunity to submit to an editor or agent each month, but first I would hearken you back to the fundamental premise – that if you join 12 x 12 you are guaranteed to write more picture book drafts in 2013 than you would on your own.

Many published, agented authors participated last year, and still more have signed on this year. To add to the benefit of an instant writing community, this year’s 12 x 12 also includes features specifically geared toward published authors. Watch this short video to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the Membership Forum to see for yourself what they are. Then join us! 🙂

  1. I would agree. I’ve already published two books with small presses and I’m doing it. It’s a great motivator. One thing I would say, however, is that I should have signed up for a package that allowed me to either have my work critiqued or to submit to agents. The cost deterred me.

  2. Thanks, Julie. This makes a lot of sense for us published, agented authors — especially those of us who run a service such as Rate Your Story, or have a forthcoming course with the Picture Book Academy! 🙂

  3. What a great video! Not only do the 12×12’ers deserve congrats, but SO DO YOU JULIE! You brought them all together, AND you made that incredible video!
