Write...Right!

I'm attending the Northern Ohio SCWBI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) Annual Conference this weekend.

I am so excited to meet up with writer friends, old and new.

And there's a great line-up this year: Agent Mark McVeigh (from the McVeigh agency), Jennifer Rees, Senior Editor at Scholastic (The Hunger Games editor!) and Martha Mihalick from Greenwillow Press, amongst other successful authors and illustrators.


Here are the seminars I signed up for:

*Revisions and the basics of getting your work noticed

*Writing high concept YA genre fiction

*Character development and establishing a strong voice

*Capturing the middle grade reader


So I'll be dreaming of writing all weekend long:

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Have fun at the conference. Did you sign up for a conference with the Hunger Games editor? That would be interesting, for sure. ALso, love the storybook blanket. I've seen it before but stuff like that never gets old. Ever.

Hope you have a blast.
