SCBWI 40th Annual Conference.

I just came back from the SCBWI 40th annual conference. And WOW! I must say.... it was an absolutely rewarding, exhausting and inspiring experience. Learned new information from industry professionals (like Martha Rago, the Creative Director from Harper Collins), heard electrifying speeches from great illustrators and authors (David Small, Gary Paulsen, Jerry Pinkney, Judy Bloom, Bruce Coville......just to name a few), meet some great people, and handed out more promotional materials that I can remember.......

Some information shared at the conference maybe quite basic, but the information and knowledge I've gained through this experience cannot be learned from anywhere but at the SCBWI conference! Also, the dummy book I made for "Leo's Job" got some great responses and I can't wait till it is officially published.

I'm really glad I went and great thanks to my conference buddies Ciaee, Lois and Arthur for sharing this experience with me, you've all have been great and supportive friends!!

Can't wait till next year :)
