SCBWI Carolinas Conference September 2015

UnknownThe SCBWI Carolinas chapter has another fabulous conference coming up September 25-27, 2015. Registration info is here.

I’ll be leading a Picture Book Intensive on Friday morning (note: registration is in addition to the conference). Here’s the description:


Working with Limits—and Limitless Choices
Picture books have certain structural restrictions. Yet, within those constraints, writers have enormous freedom in terms of the topics they choose and the ways they tell their stories. In this workshop, we’ll look at those structural limitations, and explore some of the many story-telling tools and options at our disposal—things like voice, point of view, format, word choice, and rhyme—to bring out the best in your manuscripts. Bring your good ideas (barely formed to well-developed), pad and pen, and be ready to experiment!

I’ll also be doing manuscript critiques on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
