For all you folks who want a fabulous way to spend a hot July day… consider this: http://www.thewritersplot.com/
I’ve posted some of the info from their website below (hope that’s okay, Pam!) and I hope some of you can go. I want to hear Harold Underdown speak so badly! He is a fab presence on Twitter and now he’ll be right down the road? And I KNOW Pam is a must see. I’ve had the pleasure of being in one of her workshops. That woman can teach the socks off anyone! Vonda rocks and will inspire even a rock to get up and write. And though I haven’t heard Alan Gratz yet, I have been told his presentations are incredible (plus he’s a fellow SCBWI-C member! GO ALAN!) I know all the other speakers are wonderful if for no other reason than Ms. Pam has added them to her roster.
Must see if I can figure out a way to get there. If not, I’m putting it on my conference list for next year! If you sign up, let me know. I’ll want to hear all about it when you return!
