2012 Northern Ohio SCBWI Annual Conference

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!  Here in the Cleveland area we got not only a firework show but a heat lightening one as well, and I have to say the heat lightening was a bit more impressive!

Now back to children's lit announcements.  I'm very excited to be participating in the 2012 Northern Ohio SCBWI Annual Conference here in Cleveland in September.  I will be presenting an illustration intensive discussing the illustrator's responsibilities and role in putting together a successful picture book as well as teaching a breakout session on making a picture book, from start to finish.  Registration starts today for SCBWI members and July 20th for nonmembers.  Make sure to register soon for the breakouts and critiques you want because slots fill up fast!
