ReFoReMo 2017 Presenters Revealed

On behalf of the ReFoReMo Team, we are honored to share new perspectives every March during Reading for Research Month. As we roll out the ReFoReMo carpet for our third year, we reveal our calendar of inspiring, talented publishing professionals. 


The 2017 ReFoReMo Team of Presenters

ReFoReMo will benefit writers at any level…from beginner to multi-published authors and prekindergarten through college level classrooms.  Why?  No matter the level, great gains come from reading picture books as mentor texts. As the February 15 registration date nears, we’d like to create a buzz!  Let’s kick it into gear with a sharing contest and some prizes! All you have to do is share between the dates of January 24-February 6 in order to enter the drawing.  As you know, the bigger the buzz, the more picture book writers we will inspire. Together we can transform our writing through ReFoReMo.  That’s a great thing to share!

Pick your favorite social media sites: Twitter, FB, Google +, your blog, You Tube, etc.  If you are not sure what to say, you can find information about our mission here.  Please feel free to use the Tweet examples below keeping in mind that we love originality, too!  I’ve included our Twitter handles in each Tweet so we can retweet you and show our appreciation.  Feel free to expand on these in other forums that allow more characters.
