Who are we?
At last the Caterpillar took the hookah out its mouth, and addressed Alice in a languid, sleepy voice. “WHO ARE YOU?” said the Caterpillar.
Who are we indeed! It seems that you have stumbled down our online Rabbit Hole and are in need of a muse infusion. The Mad Hatter and White Rabbit have dug a new hole and want to share some of their whimsical, inspirational and entertaining writing and illustrating tidbits. We have energised the creative flow on buses, trains, haunted ships, secret gardens but can we do it in the ethereal world of internet reality?
For those of you who don’t know who we are, or who you are, or whoever anyone is, let us introduce ourselves. The Mad Hatter (Dawne) and The White Rabbit (Svett) have been inspiring and teaching kid lit writers and illustrators for over 8 years. We have been involved in creating the Huntington Beach writers group The Sand Scribes, the crazy maniacal Critique Mania and Sense and Sensibility workshops with WritersInk, and are also responsible for the SCBWI-LA’s Down The Rabbit Hole annual event. We find ways to help the muse get back on track to creativity with some wisdom and madness mixed in. You need to know how to have fun in this line of work!
Our aim within these pages, is to share our expertise and help ignite the fuse to your creative muse. And remember, one side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter. Either way, you can be assured your character will grow!
See you at the Tea Party!
The White Rabbit & Mad Hatter.
