One of the things I love best about this contest is its focus on nonfiction. Picture book biographies were my first love when I started on this writing journey, and they are still a big part of what keeps me coming back to the genre.
As author Nancy Churnin says, picture book biographies are poems about a dream. And now this particular poem of mine about an important but almost forgotten photographer has gotten a little love. Maybe one day we'll see her story out in the world as an actual book. That would be a dream come true!
