Great news! Yesterday, I was informed that I won a scholarship to the Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators 2010 Summer Conference (SCBWI). Woohoo!
Apparently, my sneaky Regional Advisors Claudia Harrington and Edie Pagliasotti nominated me (unbeknownst to me) and President Stephen Mooser and Executive Director Lin Oliver have so kindly granted me the scholarship.
About 1,000 writers, illustrators, agents and editors attend the SCBWI Summer Conference each year. Attendees enjoy workshops, critiques, keynote speakers and endless networking opportunities. But best of all is leaving there buzzing with that feeling like anything is possible.
I have been unable to attend the last two years, but since I've finally gotten my groove back while writing my current WIP, I really wanted to go and soak up all the awesome writing mojo. And now I can!
I'm so excited and honored that my Regional Advisors thought of me and that Stephen and Lin agreed. I'm feeling pretty darn special today.
Thank you SCBWI!
What super kind thing has someone done for you lately?
