Yep, I’m in California.

Nope, it doesn’t often get much colder than 30 degrees.

Yep, I still think it’s freezing.

But NOT TO FEAR! Spring is on it’s way, which means the #SpringFlingKidlit contest is on the horizon!

Want to find out more? Check out our Spring Fling Kidlit Contest webpage from last year. All the rules will be the same, BUT there will be a surprise category for artists (announced here on Feb 3rd!) , too! And, of course, the prizes will be different. We’ll reveal those prizes (and the new artist category) in fun posts as we get closer to April (check out all the prize donors here more to be revealed soon) so make sure to subscribe to my blog as well as Ciara’s blog–especially Ciara’s blog because that’s where submissions will be posted!

We can’t wait for the spring to emerge from the winter and read all your lovely stories and see all your inspiring gifs!

Also, don’t forget Susanna Hill’s Valentiny Contest is next month and Vivian Kirkfield’s #50PreciousWords is in March!

Please share on Twitter, share on Facebook, share on Instagram, share with your critique partners, and let’s rock this spring gif style!
