SCBWINY10 - Friday Pre-Show: Writer & Illustrator Intensives, And What You Need To Know!




Okay, New York City!

It's cooooold. 13 degrees farenheit, -10 celcius as I write this!

And it's dark out still.

But it's exciting, 'cause TODAY everything's ramping up!

Don't miss the play-by-play highlights at the Official SCBWI Conference Blog!

Make sure to follow #SCBWINY10 (and add that hashtag to your own tweets) to keep up with the buzz on Twitter!

And remember there will be two special events on Saturday night after conference hours:

The SCBWI Saturday Night GAY Mixer!

Do you have questions about gay (GLBTQ) content in your work?
About gay content in children's publishing in general?
Want to meet other children’s and teen book professionals who are GLBTQ or straight allies?

Come network and chat with GLBTQ-friendly editors, agents, art directors, illustrators, and writers!
Grab a drink (cash bar, but ask about the drink specials), hang out, and enjoy a great discussion.


Saturday, January 30
6:30pm - 8pm
at Uncle Charlie's
139 E. 45th Street, 2nd Floor

(From the Hyatt, walk east (right) on 42nd St to Lexington.
Turn left, go 3 blocks north on Lexington to 45th Street.
Turn right, go 1/2 block.)

And just after that, on the same Saturday night of the conference, don't miss the

SCBWINY10 Conference Tweet-Up
8pm - ?
The Campbell Apartment Bar
15 Vanderbilt Ave (Between 42nd Street and 43rd Street)

This is IN the Grand Central Terminal, and you can get there from the hotel without going out into the cold! How cool is that? And they have live jazz. And martinis!

Hosted by the incredible Jenn Bailey!



Okay, now that you know what you absolutely HAD to know, I'm off to my writers intensive...

Have a great day, everyone!

Namaste,
Lee

I'm so envious! Wish I could be there with you guys at both events. I'm still hoping I can make it to SCBWI LA in the summer. At least for that one, I can stay with my mom and commute in!
