The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) has its big summer conference coming up on Aug. 3-6 in Los Angeles. Even if you can’t attend the conference, make it a point to check out information from the official conference blog.
You’ll find author interviews, information on new books, and helpful links—not to mention the names of some “powerhouse agents.” Pour some iced tea or a glass of cool lemonade and take a quick virtual trip. You may not come back with a t-shirt and totebag full of information, but you’ll pick up some encouragement and some tips along the way.
