The SCBWI Winter Conference is this week! It'll be awesome.
On Friday, I'll be attending the Writers' Intensive. Participants will be placed in small groups, each led by an agent or an editor. There will be one morning session and one afternoon session. We'll get the first 500 words of our manuscripts read and critiqued at each. I'm so excited! I hope they like my pages. Cross fingers! The big thing, obviously, is just getting feedback. I can hear what industry professionals think of my new and improved beginning before querying and revise accordingly. Priceless.
The rest of the conference looks really cool, too. SCBWI conferences always offer so much information and inspiration; I can't wait to soak it up, bring it home, and apply it to my projects.
It sounds like a bunch of people from my region, SCBWI-WWA, will be there. I also hope to meet some of my bloggy friends in person. I'll bring my camera and take pictures to share with everyone.
Have a great week!
