A Great Big Creativity Project Giveaway!
It’s May of 2016. I’m with Colby Sharp interviewing Dav Pilkey for The Yarn podcast.
During that interview, Colby got an idea for a book. But I didn’t know that.
A couple weeks later, I got a message from Colby that went something like “Oh, hey, I have a literary agent now and I have an idea for an anthology and we’re going to start submitting it to publishers.” Every part of that sentence came as a surprise. A wonderful surprise.
It was the beginning of what would become The Creativity Project, an anthology of over 40 children’s book creators creating short stories based on each others’ writing prompts. Colby even let me get in on the action. I contributed a story that I’m proud to say Deborah Freedman has called “weird a**”
Today The Creativity Project is out in the world, and I’m happy, and I think you’ll like this book, so I’m giving away three copies.
