Pre-#NY13SCBWI Interview with Matthew Kirby

Matthew Kirby is the award-winning author of The Clockwork Three, Icefall, and book five of the forthcoming Infinity Ring series. He was named a Publishers Weekly Flying Start, and has been nominated for the Edgar Award, the Agatha Christie Award, and won the Parents’ Choice Award Gold Medal.

He'll be on faculty at the upcoming 14th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City, February 1-3, 2013, presenting as part of the sold-out Friday intensive ELEMENTS OF THE NOVEL: A WORKSHOP FOR WRITERS, giving a talk titled: "Form Not Formula."

In this excellent interview with Matthew, Jolie Stekly found out about his shift from writing for adults to writing for young people, how Ursula Le Guin has influenced him, and gets Matthew to describe the best and worst parts of his writing process. There's even a quote from Richard Peck!

While the Friday Intensives are sold out, there are a limited number of spaces still available for the Saturday and Sunday of the 2013 SCBWI Winter Conference.  You can find out more details and register here
