SCBWI-New England Conference Registration!

Ahoy, New Englanders (or Yankees, if you prefer)! Registration for the SCBWI-New England conference starts on Monday, February 8th. The conference will be held from May 14-16 in Fitchburg, MA.

On Saturday, I'll be teaching two workshops (one on illustration, one on writing graphic novels). On Sunday, I'll be joining illustrator David Hyde Costello, editor Yolanda LeRoy, and Storm in the Barn designer extraordinaire Heather McGee in an epic 4-hour Illustrator Academy workshop.

Also on the conference bill are Marla Frazee, Allyn Johnston, Jo Knowles, Kate Messner, Jennifer Morris, Kara LaReau, Kelly Fineman and many, many more (seriously, this line-up is pretty impressive).

Conference details (including faculty bios and workshop descriptions) can be found HERE or if you prefer your info in Tweet form, you can find it HERE.

It should be a lot of fun. Hope to see you there.

I'll definitely see you there - I'm signing up for the intensive and "First, draw the brain."

I'm so excited for this conference. I'm also signing up for Marla's "Your Words, Our Pictures – An Illustrator's Look at Interpreting Text"

May can't come soon enough!

Yeah, I'm kind of sad to miss Marla's talk myself. Looking forward to meeting you in person, Michelle.
