Writing Day Anthology Purpose: To expose new talent by publishing emerging children’s book authors. To educate and inspire writers through an intensive writing workshop. To give new writers a taste of publishing success.


Why name the anthology Story Sprouts?

Since authors created their anthology pieces in the moment, inspired by the seeds sown during the writing day workshop, it seemed fitting to call these entries “Story Sprouts.” They are not polished pieces that took the authors months or years to perfect. They are the early saplings of writing, the ideas that will take root in the minds of our writers and take shape over time. The stories are shared with the reader in their early form, in an effort to be transparent in the process of writing and to engage the reader in the process and craft of verbal creation, from seed to solid oak.
