Houston SCBWI Conference or Bust!

It's been a big week for WWFC (see yesterday's post!) and it's not over yet... Tomorrow morning, at the crack of dawn, most, though not all :( of WWFC will be heading west toward Katy, Texas for the Houston SCBWI annual conference! We're all excited, kinda like college girls on their way to Cancun for Spring Break, minus the bikinis and umbrella drinks.

Here's tomorrow's line-up:

Alexandra Cooper, Editor, Simon and Schuster
Patrick Collins, Creative Director, Henry Holt & Co.
Sara Crowe, Agent, Harvey Klinger, Inc.
Nancy Ferensten, Editor-in- Chief, National Geographic
Ruta Rimas, Editor, Harper Collins
Lisa Ann Sandell, Author and Editor, Scholastic Press
Cynthia Leitich Smith, Author and Teacher (Vermont College of Fine Arts)

The Houston conference always provides great networking opportunities, a chance to get your work critiqued by an industry professional, a way to meet fellow writers & illustrators & also an excuse to eat really yummy Mexican food after.

For those of you who will be there, make sure you look for us ... WWFC from Kingwood. For those of you who can't attend ... watch this blog for a conference recap next week!

Have a great weekend!
