Craft... Business... Inspiration... Opportunity... Community!
The 2014 SCBWI Summer Conference is jam-packed with Keynotes,
Workshops (in the tracks: General, Pro, Illustration and Nonfiction), Socials and Peer Critique opportunities.
There's the Golden Kite Luncheon, The Tomie dePaola 80th Birthday Bash - A Night In Old Italy, and the Portfolio Showcase.
There's a diversity panel, a marketing and sales panel, an agents panel, and a palpable buzz of excitement as the stars of our world of children's literature gather with us for four remarkable days August 1-4, 2014 (the fourth day being the incredible intensives!)
The conference is on the verge of selling out - only a few spaces remain.
