    SCBWI’s Annual Winter Conference in New York

    Event website

    I’m excited to attend my first New York conference with SCBWI, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. This conference focuses on a deep dive into the craft of writing, hearing from many New York publishing experts, and of course attending the Golden Kite gala, featuring awards for the best in children’s lit. Gotta find a bedazzling, golden blouse to wear!

    This conference is rated by Writer magazine as one of the best of the best in the nation, and I can say with certainty that it’s a great one. I’ve been honored to be a speaker several years now. This year I’ll only be there one day, but hoping to soak up lots of writerly tidbits and happy  vibes.
