I’m leaving tomorrow for SCBWI LA…SQUEE!!!! The conference is sold out again and I can’t wait to go hang with the tribe! As you might have suspected, I’m keeping this short and sweet because I have a zillion, trillion things to get ready before I leave. But I have to give you some information…
Last year I went to the LA Conference for the first time and it was AMAZING!!!! But being my first time, it also meant that there were many years when I was living vicariously through the tweets, blogs and FB posts of those in attendance. Yup, I was trolling the net to find out what was going on. You can absolutely do that too. Virtual fun and information is a writer’s right of passage–it’s the next best thing to being there.
You can follow live tweeting of the conference on Twitter by using the hashtag #LA12SCBWI. I’ll absolutely be tweeting, but I won’t be alone.
Another FABULOUS way to get information about the conference is the SCBWI Blog.
Team Blog consists of…
- Lee Wind (I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell Do I Read?)
- Jaime Temairik (CocoaStomp)
- Jolie Stekly (Cuppa Jolie)
- Martha Brockenbrough
- Suzanne Young
And you absolutely do not want to miss them. They put in so much hard work to make this conference accessible to everyone. (((group hug)))
Of course, I’ll mini blog from the conference as best as I can and you can guarantee I’ll have a full recall for you when I get back. In the mean time, check out the SCBWI, my old posts and start following the blogs and tweets, but if you have any questions about this conference or conferences in general, I’ll do my best to answer your questions. Also, what’s the best conference you’ve ever been to? Best tip for attending conferences? Is there a conference or speaker that got away and you’re kicking yourself for not attending? Dream speaker at a conference???? Come on…distract me from packing…it’s so easy.
Also–If you’re going and you’re by yourself, have no one to eat with, and are possibly feeling a little overwhelmed and TERRIFIED!!!! Let me know and we can connect!!!
