Getting ready for the SCBWI Conference this weekend, which is always such a treat. If you are into writing or illustrating Children's Books, or interested in YA, you must make the organization a priority. The fee is minimal for such wonderful access to important, ongoing information in the industry.
You meet fabulous people in your area on a monthly basis, a calendar full of helpful tips at the meetings, plus the yearly conference, nearby, not to mention the truly amazing nationwide conferences that are available. If you haven't discovered this wonderful organization, do yourself a favor and check it out, find the chapter in your area. You won't be sorry.
