Do you find yourself stuck at home this weekend, wishing you could get away to hobnob with other writers? No need to fear, my friends. You can, albeit only virtually.
Many writers have gathered in New York City for the SCBWI Winter Conference. So much information, so little time. I’ve attended our own regional conference but never this gigantic, heart-pounding, energizing whopper.
One of these years, I’ll make it out there. For now, some of us may have to content ourselves with following the festivities vicariously through those who could attend.
Make sure to follow Alice Pope and the entire SCBWI blogging team all weekend long here.
You can also follow up-to-the-minute impressions on Twitter with the hashtag #NY11SCBWI.
Some other tasty treats you don’t want to miss out in the blogosphere (including more than one contest!):
Shelli Johannes is hosting a Pay it Forward Contest here where she will recommend ONE lucky winner to her agent, Alyssa Henkin at Trident Media.
Coincidentally, you can find an interview with Alyssa here. Kudos to Krista for her great agent interviews!
Shannon Whitney Messenger is offering a query critique.
DearEditor.com is giving away a Free YA/MG manuscript edit. Wow! Find details here.
Wherever you are this weekend, I hope it spurs your imagination to new heights.
