Yeah, that’s the holiday clock, reminding you that you still haven’t found the perfect gift for the writer in your life, and time is running out! Fear not, friends. I have the most splendifereous idea: give a writer’s conference!
Your children’s writer will look great in a writer’s conference–it’s a one-size fits all! All you have to do is find a writer’s conference, and that’s easy-peasy if you check out this link at the SCBWI website. My region, Southern Breeze, has a conference coming up in February. It’s called Springmingle and registration is going on right now. And oh, my jolly jingle bells! If you’re an illustrator, you need to read about the Liz Conrad Scholarship RIGHT NOW.
You can also shop here, at the Poets & Writers listing of conferences, if your children’s writer writes for adults as well. Finding the write gift is as quick as a click.
See? You’re already done! Now you have time for all the merry-making you can handle, so dash away, dash away, dash away all!
(Um, you know to come back after, right? See you in 2012!)
