From Lyn Seippel, assistant regional advisor of the Austin Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators:

Only NINE spots remain with our featured authors in the Critique Clinique at the April 26th Conference. [Bartography note: I’m one of those authors, and if my spots don’t all get taken up, I’ll be so sad.]

* First Come – First Served
* Available to anyone who registers for the conference

Secure your spot now and then you’ll have until March 1st to work on your manuscript.

Once you have your manuscript professionally critiqued by one of our featured authors, and revisions are complete, then consider sending it to an editor or agent for consideration. As a registered participant of the April 26th conference, you will be able to submit to/query speakers Alvina Ling (editor), Deborah Wayshak (editor) and Erin Murphy (agent) after the conference.

Registration forms and detailed information are available at
