Lin Oliver's Welcome To #LA17SCBWI
It's a funny, warm, and charming welcome to the 1,150 attendees of the 2017 SCBWI Summer Conference in Los Angeles.
Some interesting statistics on us: 668 pre-published, 433 published (and yeah, Lin acknowledges we're not necessarily all math people…)
We're from 12 countries, and 44 U.S. states.
From breath workers, to spin masters, from a fish veterinarian, to people working in health care, from stay-at-home parents, to a "professional wizard," we span occupations and realms, all with a passion for creating stories for children and teens.
Welcome! (And welcome as well, for those of you following along virtually.)
