The Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators
Midsouth Conference 2017
Attending my first ever writer’s conference earlier this month was a rich and fascinating experience! What a treat to make new writer/illustrator friends, to have a face-to-face critique with the senior Scholastic editor, and to hear my first page receive such a positive reaction at the First Pages event.
The faculty shared their wealth of experience with us during numerous workshops, and I learned so much that I now can put into action.
Current life events here and my full-time work as a teacher do offer quite the challenge to a writing schedule, but whenever I am inspired and find those magic moments, I now have a clear direction.
If you have never attended a writers conference, I encourage you to do so! It does not matter where you are on your journey. You will become more inspired and better equipped to seriously pursue your dream. Find the next group and meeting that matches your genre, and register today!
