The 2013 Austin SCBWI Regional Conference

Posted February 10, 2013

 

ASCBWI13

This weekend was the Austin SCBWI Regional Conference! As always, it was a fabulously organized and lovely affair, with keynotes by E.B. Lewis and Neal Porter, panels on picture books, “no nonsense non-fiction,” and more editors and agents than you could shake a stick at. (Note: shaking sticks at editors and agents is not advised. That was just a figure of speech).

But more than anything else, this weekend reminded me how lucky I am to be a part of this wonderful community of creative people. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this weekend happen – especially Debbie Gonzales, our beloved, outgoing R.A. I HEART you, Deb!

Here are some pictures!
