The 13th Annual Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Winter Conference will be held January 27th-29th at the Hyatt Regency Grand Central in New York City. There will be stellar keynotes, exciting panels and genre workshops with agents, editors and art directors. Along with their Writer and Illustrator Intensives, SCBWI is also offering a third intensive which is Marketing for Writers. All three have limited capacity so make sure you sign up quickly once registration opens. The Intensives will take place on January 27th as will the portfolio showcase which is open to all who register for the Illustrator Intensive.
In response to overwhelming demand, SCBWI will be having a gala cocktail reception for all on Saturday night for shmoozing, eating, drinking and just plain partying.
