I LOVE writer’s conferences! And I especially love Springmingle, which happens to be my own region’s (Southern Breeze) SCBWI conference that’s held every February. I love to catch up with writer friends I hardly ever get to see, and I love hearing the First Page critiques, and I love meeting agents and editors and famous authors. I even love those nerve-wracking formal critiques.
And so I’m off to mingle this fine almost spring day. But first a little oldie-but-goodie tip from Arthur A. Levine, Vice-President of Scholastic Books. (And P.S. If you’re a conference lover, too, you’ll want to check out The Official SCBWI Conference Blog. I think that title pretty much says it all.)
