True to the organizers' word, it was a magical weekend. Despite Marquette being eight hours north of everything, the drive is always worth it the moment I arrive. The speakers, critiques, friends new and old, plus a little time to think only of writing and children's books, all contribute to a successful weekend. Plus, it isn't every day a person wins a magic wand contest (and $50 towards any SCBWI related expense)! If you want to know more about SCBWI national or the Michigan chapter, go to "contacts" above.
This blog shares insights on the craft of writing children's books and the publishing industry, and supports creators and educators on their journeys.
