Hi! Please mark your calendars… the 6th annual NATIONAL PICTURE BOOK WRITING WEEK (AKA “NaPiBoWriWee”) will take place May 1-7, 2014.

For the past five years, NAPIBOWRIWEE has celebrated the art and craft of writing picture books by challenging writers to attempt to write 7 picture books in 7 days. We feature fun Q&A blogs with guest authors plus lots of fun prizes and souvenirs. The goal of NAPIBOWRIWEE is to encourage writers to fight procrastination by trying to write AND finish a first draft of a picture book every single day for seven straight days. You are allowed to brainstorm, research, and outline your picture books all year-long until May 1st, when you are to write full drafts of each picture book through May 7th.

For more information and FAQs, please visit these blog links:


In addition, we have souvenirs available at our NAPIBOWRIWEE 2013 store, including coffee mugs & travel mugs, journals, T-shirts, and tote/beach bags! Please visit our store here:

We will debut a NEW store for 2014 in early Spring 2014, so please stay tuned for that.
