Workshop 1. Making the Most of Your Conference Experience with Sue Burgess. Part ice-breaker, part tip-sharing, and part inside scoop on SCBWI New England conferences, this session is designed for attendees traveling alone, those new to children’s-book publishing, and those simply interested in meeting colleagues. Bring a smile and a warm handshake. (Click here for more information about Sue and all the conference's workshop leaders.)
Peer Group Critiques. Come with members of your critique group, or come by yourself, and meet up with others who have similar writing or illustrating interests. Bring a copy of your work and get ready to share! Participants will be divided into small groups. This is a great informal way to get a fresh perspective on your work.
If you wish to attend either afternoon session, please write "Workshop" or "Group Crit" on the line for Friday Session A on the registration form. (Both sessions are optional. Only performing in the cabaret is absolutely required. Kidding.)
Cabaret Night Join your SCBWI New England friends in the hotel ballroom for a night of dancing, music and entertainment!
• Dancing & Music with Joey the DJ
• Snacks & cash bar
• Special Guest Performers
• Free to all Conference attendees!
(If you would like to perform at the cabaret yourself, please contact Marilyn Salerno.)
