NJ SCBWI Workshop

Heading to the NJ SCBWI writer's workshop Sunday. The workshops are terrific for both aspiring and new authors alike. Tomorrow's workshop includes: Jessica Garrison (Dial Books), Edward Necarsulmer (McIntosh & Otis), Greg Ferguson (EgmontUSA), Connnie Hsu (Little, Brown) and Noa Wheeler (Henry Holt). A great line-up. Check the NJ website for details about the big June conference. I'll be a workshop speaker for the "First Books Panel". Everything you want to know about a first year experience and how my manuscript was discovered at a NJ workshop. More later on the June conference....

Highlights Magazine

Highlights Magazine for Children recently released their "wish list" for articles. Highlights is a terrific magazine -yes, the one that you remember from your own youth. Except it's certainly been updated! Cool, interesting articles and fiction for kids. Lots of opportunities for aspiring writers as well. I currently have two articles submitted. Check out their website at www.highlights.com.
