Fall SCBWI Mid-Atlantic Conference

What a great couple of days at our region's annual conference! A fabulous morning workshop on Friday with Matthew Winner, a library media specialist, co-founder of All the Wonders children's literature website and host of All the Wonders podcast. Matthew presented invaluable information about how to connect author's with schools and libraries. Check out his website and podcast info. http://www.allthewonders.com/about/

In the afternoon, a roundtable of both long-published and newbie authors shared information about how to balance writing and making a living. So collegial and generous.

The keynote speaker on Saturday was Gary D. Schmidt, a prolific, award-winning writer and professor at Calvin College in Michigan. He inspired us with his remarks about writing to serve and challenged us to keep our awareness of different perspectives in the world. https://calvin.edu/directory/people/gary-schmidt

A wonderful gathering of the tribe!
