SCBWI Summer Annual Conference Info Now Up on scbwi.org...

Registration doesn't open until May 5, but you can get a peek at the SCBWI Annual Summer Conference faculty, schedule and info now on scbwi.org (click on "Summer Conference.") The event will take place August 7-10 at the Hyatt Recency Century Plaza.

Keynote speakers for the L.A. event include Ingrid Law, Betty Birney, Karen Cushman, Sherman Alexie, Ellen Hopkins, Holly Black, Dan Yaccarino, David Wiesner and Kathleen Duey. Plus there's a host of authors, illustrators, agents and editors (including yours truly) on the faculty.


Between now and the August event look for exclusive interviews with keynote speakers, Golden Kite winners, and conference faculty, along with other fun and informative conference posts, here and on all the SCBWI TEAM BLOGgers blogs. TEAM BLOG includes Jaime Temairik, Jolie Stekly, Lee Wind, Paula Yoo, Suzanne Young and me. (See the SCBWI TEAM BLOG roll at right.) Whenever a TEAM member offers a conference post, I'll give you a link.

And don't forget--during conference time SCBWI TEAM BLOG will live blog the event. If you're not attending, you can follow our play by play. If you'll be there, you can read about all the sessions you don't attend. And much more.

It's always great to know that if we can't attend a conference, you've got it covered! Thanks, Alice and the rest of the team.
