The first NESCBWI Squam Lake Retreat (Holderness, NH) is September 6-8, 2013.
We have a mentor-participant ratio that caps out at about 1:7!
- Sarah Dotts Barley, HaperCollins Children's Editor
- John Cusick, Greenhouse Literary Agent
- Linda Mullaly Hunt, Author
- Scott Nash, Illustrator, Author & marketing expert
We really want to make sure illustrators in particular are aware of what Scott Nash has to offer as a mentor- I've just added an interview with him to the Squam website (link below). Scott writes and illustrates (fifty books and counting), owns a children's media firm in Portland, and is the Chair of the Illustration Dept. at Maine College of Art. It's so amazing to add him to our already fabulous line-up of mentors. Read more:
