Jen Calonita*
The first writing challenge is up! And it comes with a prize. Every kid who tackles one of this week’s writing prompts and has a parent comment on this page that they’ve tried the assignment (or you want to send a screenshot of their work) will be entered to win an autographed copy of VIP. Each week I’ll pick a new book to give away and I’ll pick a winner at random on Sunday (U.S. only). Have fun!

Kate DiCamillo*
Here is a message from her to her fans and we hope to continue these #WritewithKate posts weekly, with a different writing prompt or inspiration.
