Writing Tips

Go the Distance with SCBWI Oklahoma

Tagged: , , , , , ,

2016-Spring-Conference-FlyerOne of the best parts of my writing journey has been discovering the friendship and encouragement of fellow writers. The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) is a national organization dedicated to bringing together the creators and facilitators of wonderful children’s literature. SCBWI has many regional chapters, including here in Oklahoma, that provide networking and learning opportunities to beginning and established writers.

This year, I have the privilege of serving on the publicity committee for the SCBWI Oklahoma Spring Conference. Our theme is “Go the Distance.” As an attendee, you will get a chance to learn from and submit your work to seasoned professionals, such as Sara Sargent, Executive Editor at HarperCollins Children’s Books, and Vicki Selvaggio, Associate Agent with The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.

In addition, you will be able to exchange ideas with fellow dreamers. Dreamers who dare to go the distance to bring important stories to life.
