Welcome to BookSprouting!

We are happy to announce the launch of! BookSprouting is a community dedicated to the positive development of children’s literature where members can share their stories and receive feedback so that their work can develop and grow. Our main goal is to make positive additions to the world of children’s books and we think the community at large has the talent and vision to make that happen. Let us help you on your way to getting published!

In our goal to advance the quality of children’s books, BookSprouting is looking for the next great author! The daunting task of getting a work published often stops a writer in their tracks, letting their terrific idea for a story fall to the wayside. To help prevent this from happening, BookSprouting will be hosting contests in hopes of helping a writer get closer to their dream.

Each competition invites members to submit their best story where it will then be up to the BookSprouting community to vote and decide on their favorite. Our first competition will take place as soon as BookSprouting reaches 3000 members. As the numbers approach that mark, we will post the rules and regulations regarding that competition. The prizes for our first contest will be $1000, an iPod nano, 4 tickets to Disneyland, and a chance to become published!
