SCBWI Los Angeles Writer's Days: A Two Day Conference Coming Up On April 21 and 22, 2012

One of the coolest things about my being co-Regional Advisor for the Los Angeles chapter of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators is putting together (along with my amazing co-RA Sarah Laurenson) our region's 2012 writer's days conference!

Our theme:

Books and Beyond:  How To Make a Living (and a Life!) As A Writer
Our faculty are amazing, including award winning, innovative, and prolific authors Terri Farley, Dawne Knobbe, Lee Wardlaw, and Sara Wilson Etienne, literary agent Michael Bourret, Editor Stacey Barney, and expert sessions on contracts (with Bonnie Berry LaMon, Esq.), taxes (with Monica Haven, EA, JD, LLM), and school visits (with Author and school visit expert Alexis O'Neill!)  Each day will be filled with business, craft, inspiration and community!

To celebrate (and get everyone else as excited as we are), I put together this video of our faculty's 10 Hot Tips!

There's still time to register!  For more information, go here.

Thanks, and hope to see you there,
