I got to sit down with Emma Dryden, drydenbks founder and SCBWI Board Member, and have her share more details with us about her keynote at the upcoming 40th Anniversary SCBWI Summer Conference!
In addition to her Friday Keynote, Emma will also be leading a Saturday morning workshop, "Independent Editors and new Models for Publishing Our Stories," and a Sunday afternoon pro-track workshop with Harold Underdown, "Social Media for Authors and Illustrators."
The conference will have Emma, over 20 leading editors, art directors and agents, and many of the great children’s book authors and illustrators of our time, including Laurie Halse Anderson, Libba Bray, Bruce Coville, John Green, Norton Juster, Donna Jo Napoli, Mary Pope Osborne, Gary Paulsen, Jerry Pinkney, Jon Scieszka and David Small.
So go check out all the faculty and conference offerings, register, and I hope to see you there!
