SCBWI Big Five-Oh Conference – 2021

The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, known as the international professional organization for authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults, is having its annual summer conference. It is the 50th anniversary of this conference and has an exciting line-up of agents, authors, and poets.

I like this conference because there is something for everyone. Not just about fiction, the conference has workshops and learning opportunities in business aspects such as rights management and royalty statements, non-fiction, writing for the educational market, building brands, marketing, and techniques in illustration including researching. I’ll be attending, focusing on taking the Illustrator’s intensive, non-ficion, and educational. Please say hi if you bump into me.
