CELEBRATION!


 

Did you do it? Did you persevere through 28 days of reading, writing, and taking action? Were you educated, inspired, and supported? It was not easy!

We sure hope you did. If you read every post and completed at least 20 activities, you may take the NF Fest Pledge:

         I did it! I completed at least 20 activities. I read every post.

If you registered before Feb. 1, simply add “I did it” to the comments below. INCLUDE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME. This makes you eligible for our random prize drawing.

Now you can add the winner badge to your social media!

IF YOU DIDN’T FINISH, no worries. Take your time. Award yourself the winner badge whenever you do manage to complete everything.

To sustain you until next year’s NF Fest, here are three suggestions:

1.     Participate in the NF Fest Facebook group. (NFFest)

2.     Read the posts from NF Fest 2020.

3.     Keep reading children’s nonfiction and write, write, write!

Prize winners will be announced by the middle of March. We hope you will complete the evaluation form you will receive soon in your email. That’s how we can make NF Fest 2021 even better.

    1. I just want to say that I have had my determination to complete this year's readings and activities confirmed by the works I've been able to complete. Last year, I don't exactly remember what happened, but my notes stopped at Day 11/February 11th. This year, I just wasn't going to let this happen. I have three dummy books semi-compiled: I am gathering more family history to use in the memoirs I will be working on, and I hope to continue to work on the children book biographies on a specific event in the lives of Harriet Tubman and Condoleezza Rice. And, oh my, I have produced so much more. And yes, along with the Activities from the postings, I have also completed, and will continue to complete, the Calendar Activities! Thank you all for sharing and allowing me to take this very challenging, yet fruitful, journey!

    This Nonfiction Fest was fabulous! It was even more meaning this year as I have a nonfiction manuscript that I'm currently working on. Being able to look from the posts to my manuscript really helped make everything click even more. Thank you to the Nonfiction Chicks and to all of the amazing authors for your excellent posts, activities, and contributions to this event and children's literature.

I did read one every day and did 20 activities- some in a hurry, but saved the print out to continue learning.
