Kate Messner: The Pre-#NY14SCBWI Interview by Jolie Stekly

Feb 21-23 is coming up soon, and in the ramp-up of excitement for the 2014 SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City, Jolie Stekly interviewed conference faculty member, award-winning author (of picture books and novels for teens) Kate Messner.

They speak about Kate having been a teacher (and how that influences her as a writer) and there's a lot of great insights into Kate's process, like this quote,

"Most days, after I write a scene or two, I go back and revise my outline, so it’s not a strict guideline but more of a fluid document that changes as I grow to understand my characters more fully."

Kate will be presenting as part of the Plot Intensive on Friday, and while all the Friday intensives are sold-out, you can still register for the main two days of the conference (Saturday and Sunday.)

Workshops are filling fast, and early registration ends tomorrow at 5pm Pacific Time.

We hope you'll join us! Go here for all the conference information.
