Here are links to some of our favorite websites about

children's books, writing, and just plain cool stuff.


The Children's Book Council -- a nonprofit organization dedicated to children's books. It has links to publisher, writers and illustrators, as well as articles and news.

Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators -- a great organization for people interested in creating books for children

The Purple Crayon -- a terrific reference and resource for anyone interested in children's books. The site has an interview and an article by WINC member Jacqueline K. Ogburn.

Wildacres is a marvelous retreat center in the Blue Ridge Mountains. If a week devoted to writing sounds like your idea of a good time, then check out the writers' workshops.

The North Carolina Writers' Network has one of the best slogans ever: "Writing and Reading: Everybody's Art."

American Library Association Libraries -- we love 'em and we need 'em, now more than ever.
