The beginning of the school year seems like the perfect time to make a commitment to learning.

For me, that means learning more about craft: plotting, pacing, voice, character development, and revision.

It also means learning from other writers: networking, swapping pages, and sharing stories (and plenty of laughter) to fuel the journey.

What conferences are you planning to attend in the coming months?

Here is where I'm headed:

September, 2014: Northern Ohio 12th Annual SCBWI Conference; Cleveland, Ohio

November, 2014: Western PA SCBWI 2014 Fall Conference; Pittsburgh, PA


  1. I'm going to the Surrey International Writers' Conference in October (Surrey, BC, Canada). I LOVE that conference! So much learning, so many writer-friends. :D

  2. Sounds wonderful! I loved the New England SCBWI conference last spring. Hoping to attend that one again in the future!
