Enter Fairday's Drawing Contest!


Time to DRAW! Visualization is a wonderful way to help the writing process. I'll think of a scene, then sketch it out on paper. Sometimes this changes the idea I had in my head or the picture becomes clearer. Drawing is a ton of fun. It's like escaping into your own world where anything is possible because you're the creator, so show us your artwork!


Send us an illustration of a scene from THE SECRET FILES OF FAIRDAY MORROW, and you're entered to win a mystery book prize.

The winner will be announced in April, and their artwork will be revealed to the world. :)

Send your artwork to: haightjess@gmail.com

*All entries will be considered, and the contest is open internationally.


Just look at this amazing artwork sent in by our young readers.

  7. I love kid art! It's so free and wonderful. Mine, on the other hand, is neither, so I'll applaud from the sidelines.
