Former Cybils judge and founder of the Nerdy Book Club, Colby Sharp, has just landed a book deal with Little, Brown.
From the Publisher’s Weekly story:
Sharp is going to expand on the importance of reading and writing by editing an interactive anthology, The Creativity Project, which Little, Brown Books for Young Readers has bought for publication in 2018. The Creativity Project is Sharp’s first published book, and targets middle-grade readers as well as elementary school teachers for use in classes.
The Creativity Project will feature contributions by 43 children’s book authors and illustrators representing a variety of genres and from diverse backgrounds, including Sherman Alexie, Kate DiCamillo, Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), Sophie Blackall, R.J. Palacio, and Jewell Parker Rhodes. Each contributor initially was asked to provide two writing prompts, which were then given to another contributor to help them get started after selecting one of the two prompts.
