I'm back! Just returned from the SCBWI-LA conference and am amazed at how much I learn each time I attend. Over 1300 writers and illustrators attended the conference. The workshops were fantastic and the keynote speakers were so inspirational. I took so many notes and collected so many business cards that I'm having to take time to sort it all out. Once I do that, I will post some of the comments from the speakers, publishers, editors, and agents that I think are of interest to writers like us. Met some writers from as far away as the Netherlands, Australia, and Hong Kong. Renewed friendships with other writers I had met before but hadn't seen in a while.
The portfolios displayed by the illustrators in attendance were outstanding. So much talent gathered in one place.
Took a side trip to the Getty Museum while there. Awesome. Once I catch my breath, I will post some pictures as well. Happy writing.
