Kansas SCBWI Conference

For children’s writers in the middle of the country, the Kansas chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) is planning a terrific fall conference:

On the Yellow Brick Road to Publishing: Brains, Heart and Courage Needed
September 30, 2006

McCoy Meetin’ House
Park University
Parkville, MO

Conference Faculty
Along with keynote addresses, panels, and breakout sessions, the conference will offer manuscript critiques and a first-page critique session. Registration forms will soon be available on the Kansas SCBWI website and will be mailed to SCBWI members in Kansas and western Missouri. Email for more information and to request a registration form.

I was on the faculty of last year’s Kansas SCBWI conference, and I can vouch for the professional quality of the conference and the enormous amount of information, as well as cameradie, you’ll find there.

Kansas SCBWI is a chapter of the international SCBWI organization.
