The LGBTQ Q&A at the #LA12SCBWI Summer Conference!

Last year's LGBTQ Q&A at the SCBWI Summer Conference

I'm very excited to announce that once again I'll be moderating this discussion at the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrator's Summer Conference (August 3-6, 2012.)

The LGBTQ Q&A will be held this year on Friday August 3, 2012 from 7:30 to 8:30 pm.  Our special guests will be publisher and editor Arthur A. Levine, Assistant Literary Agent Natalie M. Lakosil, and Award-winning Author Sonya Sones!

We'll be discussing LGBTQ publishing, the submission process, and who is interested in what kinds of stories.

Maybe you've written a book about or for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer or questioning youth.  Maybe you're interested in doing so.  Maybe you are just curious to learn more about this vital corner of the market for young readers.

It's been a wonderful discussion and community-building experience at past conferences, and with Arthur, Natalie and Sonya this is an amazing opportunity to learn, be inspired, connect, and have your questions answered.

You can still register for the SCBWI Summer Conference here.

Hope to see you!
