What A Conference! Thank You and We'll See You In Los Angeles!

Though we're missing Suzanne Young (cheering you on Suzanne, for the release in the UK of your YA novel "Just Like Fate!"), all of us on Team Blog want to thank you for sharing in this digital expression of a weekend overflowing with craft, inspiration, business, opportunity and community!

Special shout outs of appreciation to our Conference Illustrator Journal participants Andy Musser, Arree Chung, Brooke Boynton Hughes, Dana Arnim, Elizabeth Dulemba, Mike Curato and Suzanne Kaufman. (Those links will take you to their conference illustrations!)

Clockwise from the top: Lee Wind, Jaime Temairik, Martha Brockenbrough and Jolie Stekly

Check out all the conference blog posts (and leave comments where you'd like to join in the conversation), explore the conference quotes on tumblr and get your feet wet (or better yet, jump into) the #ny14scbwi tweet-stream.

Did you attend and blog about your own conference experience? Add a comment (with a link!) here on this post.

We hope you'll join us at the SCBWI Summer Conference August 1-4, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The faculty will include Aaron Becker, Stephen Chbosky, Tomie dePaola, Sharon Flake, Meagan McDonald, Meg Rosoff, Judith Schachner, Maggie Stiefvater, plus a bevy of agents, editors and art directors! (Information coming soon here.)

See you in Los Angeles - and before that, online!

Illustrate and Write On,

Martha Brockenbrough
