Opportunity is Knocking From the Children’s Book Academy

Writers and Illustrators!

Join Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Senior Designer and Art Director Andrea Miller, and the Picture Book Whisperer Herself, Dr. Mira Reisberg (AKA the Fairy Godmother, and Clear Fork Publishing/Spork Art Director and Editor) for our highly interactive Illustration Course complete with fab fresh Submission Opportunities!

Every now and then, opportunity knocks on your door. And from now until tomorrow midnight November 25th, the Children’s Book Academy’s ground-breaking Craft and Business of Illustrating Children’s Books highly interactive e-course is knocking with a massive $100 discount. This is to enable beginning to award-winning illustrators and writers to deepen their knowledge of making excellent children’s books, learn awesome and doable new skills, and open new doors to publication. Below are the amazing 11 bonuses, many of which will disappear after the 25th.

And Guess What? REGISTRATION IS OPEN RIGHT NOW – Scroll on to find out more!

FYI when we say 5 weeks, that’s not a lesson a week – but five jam-packed, time-flexible mentored weeks followed by an instant access week of awesome instruction!

  • Are you a writer wanting to illustrate your own books or would you like to become a better writer by fully understanding how the illustration process works?
  • Or maybe you are a beginning or professional illustrator wanting to update your skills to move into new markets?
  • Whether you’re at the stick figure stage or have won awards – you will wildly increase your chances of publication with this course!!!


This discount is available for both the Big Bonus level, which includes the full course, the optional critique groups, the interactive learning community, and all the bonuses and submission opportunities we offer; or the extra special Success level, which includes the Big Bonus Plus a one-hour one-on-one critique with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and their new Graphic Novel imprint, Etch, Designer and Art Director Andrea Miller.

Click here for the Big Bonus and don’t forget the case sensitive 2019ArLove code for that discount as it’s not refundable if you forget it.


And here for the Big Bonus Plus the fantastic critique with Andrea Miller:

Or, … there are still a few critiques at the non-deeply discounted cost with Clearfork/Spork Editor and Art Director Dr. Mira Reisberg, who has helped launch, or reinvigorate, many, many former student’s careers (Mira’s former students have so far published over 370 books and won every major North American award).

Andrea and Mira will be joined each week by these fantastic weekly live guests critiquing and nurturing student’s work in really helpful ways (these are also recorded). And below that are the industry decision makers who will be looking at your work at the end of the course with an eye towards acquisition (although of course there are no guarantees) in what we call the Golden Tickets.

In CBA‘s recent picture book writing course, editors and agents requested 54 submissions from students (with more requests still to come), which is truly remarkable. We are hoping for something similar with this upcoming course.

This fabulous invitation to all sorts of new opportunities is knocking on your door right now. Are you going to open to it? Register now, or click the We Can Do It button below to find out more!

Talk tomorrow,
