I recently heard from Steve Tomajcyk (pronounced two-MY-cheek), a published author who not long ago moved to Springfield. Discovering no organized group for aspiring children’s writers in town, Steve decided to establish one.
Steve invited me to attend his inaugural meeting, to be held on Saturday, April 18, from 11:00 – 2:00, location to be announced, to speak to the group about the children’s market and how to write for it. I look forward to it. Missouri needs more children’s writers. We have our share of creative people here and our heritage is rich with stories to tell. I applaud Steve and wish him well in his efforts to bring writers together to encourage and support their efforts to fit their voices into the children’s market.
If you live in the drivable area around Springfield and/or know someone who does and might be interested in attending this historic meeting, please plan to come and share the news. For further information, you can reach Steve at Reach4TheStarzz@Gmail. I’ll also post updates as I receive them.
