Yep, one of our members has done it again!! Lauren LeBlanc won SCBWI’s WIP award for her chapter book submission: How to be a Bad Guy by Dallas Bottomley

Fed up with his friends’ obsession with superheroes, 8-year-old Dallas decides to become a villain instead. But when he discovers he would rather stand up for the underdog, he must redefine what villainy means to him.

Here’s the official SCBWI WIP ANNOUNCEMENT. Let’s give a round of applause for Lauren and wish her a ginormous amount of luck for the next round of her journey.

We want your news!

If you’ve recently signed a book deal or won an ward, or your next book is coming out, we want to know and we want to share it with the WORLD!! Please email us at scbwiepa@gmail.com with your news!

Write on,
Kim Briggs, Co-RA Eastern PA SCBWI

  1. Congratulations, Lauren LeBlanc! Your manuscript sounds wonderful. My son’s older know but he sure went through a mighty superhero stage. I hope your manuscript gets picked up soon!

  2. Fantastic news Lauren!!

    Congrats Lauren!!
    Kim & Co: thanks for all your work on Fall Philly; looks great!! Am wondering: there aren’t too many agents that seem to rep a lot of PBs — do you have a list of the craft session topics yet? Just want to make sure that they will be relevant for PB-focussed authors. Thanks!!

    • Hey Anna, Elizabeth Kann and Jennifer Hansen Rolli will both present PB themed sessions, and all the panels have a fantastic representation for PBs as well. The schedule will be posted soon!
