Until the next time... In Los Angeles! (August 2-5, 2013)

Team Blog, hard at work.

From left to right:  Martha Brockenbrough, Jolie Stekly, Lee Wind, Jaime Temairik and Suzanne Young.  Err...   Suzanne (not pictured) is doing research on her new book dealing with invisibility, and although she's not visible in the photo, she's blogging away!

Suzanne, visible

We had a great time blogging the 14th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference!  We invite you to read the posts from the sessions you were fortunate enough to attend, get a glimpse of the ones you missed, and think about the moments and insights that are still resonating for you.  Share your take in comments.

And we hope to see YOU in Los Angeles for the 42nd Annual SCBWI Summer Conference, August 2nd-August 5th, 2013.

Illustrate and Write On,

Lee, Jaime, Jolie, Martha and Suzanne

  1. Ahhh. It's not as good as being there, but following the conference blog helps me feel less bereft. And maybe it convinces me that I *must* go next year, no matter what. (My goal: sell two more books. Go to both national conferences)

  2. Thanks for the great blog! With no way to be at all the sessions at once, this blog meets a need to help me catch up with what I missed. Thanks blog team! You're the best!

  3. Thank you for all your great work! You guys are amazing :)

  4. Hello, I cannot find anything on the website that gives details as to price, and other concerns. Please let me know the details for the events. I would like to attend.


  5. You're welcome all, and anthonye44, information and registration for the Summer Conference will be up at the main scbwi site, in April!
