I am really looking forward to the Houston SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) conference coming April 18-19th. It is such a great opportunity to meet editors, art directors and agents, learn more about the craft of writing, and spend a weekend enjoying the company of fellow writers and illustrators.
The Houston bunch is an especially friendly group. All levels of writers are welcomed, from beginners, who may just be dreaming of writing a book someday, to experienced authors and illustrators with many books already out in bookstores around the world.
The details for the conference can be found at the Houston SCBWI website: www.houston.scbwi.org
Registration is open and critique opportunities are still available so check it out!
