SCBWI Florida's Mid-Year Conference Was Wonderful!

Wow.  What an amazing conference. The SCBWI Florida Mid-Year Conference at the Walt Disney World Yacht Club, Orlando, was an amalgam of fabulous new material, collegiality and interesting people. 

Nancy and Andrea Davis Pinkney
I attended the Picture Book Intensive lead by Andrea Davis Pinkney, a New York Times best-selling and award-winning author and editor at Scholastic, Inc. and by Sylvie Frank, associate editor at Holiday House.  Both women did a marvelous job discussing the intricacies of picture book writing and marketing. 

It was my pleasure to conduct the all-day workshop on non-fiction with Deb Noyes Wayshak, editor-at-large at Candlewick Press. 

Part of our Tampa critique group
I want to thank those who attended our workshop.  It was so lovely to work with you.

 Deb and I wish you well in your pursuit of fair use and thorough research in the writing fun, exciting and worthy non-fiction.

All of my expectations were fulfilled.  New friends were met.  New information and ideas were learned.  What an august group.  Being an author rocks!
