(What’s with the Shark Vs. Train reference in the post title? Well, read on…)
Registration opens one week from tomorrow for the annual conference of the Austin chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
Regardless of whether you’re aspiring or accomplished, the March 7-8 conference has something for you:
keynote addressess and panel discussions
writing craft breakouts
all-day illustrator track
all-day professional development track
critiques and reviews of manuscripts, portfolios, and picture book dummies
There’s all that, and more, and I haven’t even listed the editors, art director, agents, New York Times bestselling authors, and other artists and authors who will be on the faculty. You can see that list here, but I do want to point out that I’ll be among them, as will illustrator Tom Lichtenheld.
In the nearly five years since the publication of our book Shark Vs. Train, this will be the first time that Tom and I have appeared together at the same conference. I’m excited about that, and I hope you are, too.
So, get it on your calendar today, get ready to register next Monday, and we’ll see you in March!
