A while back, I mentioned that I was going to be on the faculty at the Niagara Retreat and Conference this coming May. Not enough illustrators signed up to warrant keeping the Illustrator track, so the conference has decided to drop that part of the programming.
For those who signed up for my one-on-one Platform Critiques, I'll still be honouring those via Skype chat.
Disappointed that I won't be attending this year, but I still heartily recommend this event for anyone interested in writing for young people. Check out the all-star faculty:
Susan Rich: Editor-at-Large for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
Susan Hawk: The Bent Agency
Sara Zarr, YA author (From Debbie: I'm still hoping to get my Sara Zarr books autographed someday!)
Ellen Hopkins, YA author
Kimberley Griffiths-Little, MG and YA author
Lorin Oberweger, freelance editor
Roman White, director & author
Laura Biagi, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency Inc.
