StoryQuest 2020!

StoryQuest is back, and more exciting than ever—and in 2020, we’re going virtual!


StoryQuest is an online conference for picture book authors—and it's much more than a conference. During our six-week adventure, you will attend three informative webinars from our esteemed author mentors: Mark Hoffmann, Don Tate, and Hayley Barrett. You will traverse great heights by working with a small critique group, helping each other to create the best possible story.


Also, the StoryQuest Adventure Guides will share secrets and insights along the way—with short mini-sode videos on topics ranging from tips on being a good critiquer to  researching agents. Our ultimate triumph for Questers will be hitting send to query an agent at our final StoryQuest Query Celebration!


Come join our expedition and embark with us on the next epic StoryQuest! For more information, visit our StoryQuest 2020 page!

Loft Replay: Planning & Growing a Career as a Work-For-Hire Writer

Thanks to Kristin Russo for her awesome craft chat on Tuesday, July 16. Here's the presentation in convenient video form!



We are going to publish another anthology! This one will be called FRIENDS AND ANEMONES, and it will be another illustrated collection of poems for children. Our first poetry anthology, AN ASSORTMENT OF ANIMALS, consisted of text and illustrations all about animals. For our next collection, we sought illustrations and poems about the ocean, the creatures who live there, and the beauty and conservation of the sea. Visit our anthology page for more information!

Here are some Lofters reading aloud from our first anthology!

The Writers' Loft is located at 20 North Main St., Sherborn, Mass, 01770 (our driveway is on Cemetery Lane.) Please park in the back lot and walk up the ramp to the entry door. Once inside, make an immediate right to find our office door, #360. The Writers' Loft is accessible only via stairs.


We'd love to assist with all of your writing needs! Please email us to arrange your first visit. To reserve community space for a gathering or book launch, please check our calendar on the events page, and then email us.
