Five years ago, our children’s literature community raised over $35,000 for Superstorm Sandy relief efforts.

4. A minimum opening bid, if you feel strongly about it – if not, I’ll set this based on past experience for similar items.
UPDATE: Donations have come in faster than I can even read the emails. I need to wind down with accepting them at this point so that we can actually get the 100+ auction items listed. If you still want to donate a full manuscript critique, agent-editor crit or access, original art, or other high ticket item, please email by 3pm EST on Monday 8/28. Thanks!
The auction will run over the next week or so – after it ends, I’ll send an email connecting you with the person who won your item, and you’ll take it from there. Feel free to email with any questions!
