The workshop committee of New England SCBWI welcomes proposals for the 2014 Spring conference, "Create Bravely: Make Your Mark," to be held May 2-4, 2014.
Taking risks with our writing or illustrating moves us forward. Sometimes it's a scary step, and it's hard to think outside our comfort zones. This year, proposals focusing on being brave, taking risks, and working outside our comfort zone will take center stage. New England SCBWI is one of the largest SCBWI conferences, and in past we have sold out within a few weeks. We welcome proposals from everyone involved in the world of children's writing and publishing.
In addition to basic workshops, and those focused at general audiences, we'd like to invite more intensive hands-on workshops, as well as Pro-Track proposals. Lecture-style workshops are still welcome as well. We encourage presenters who are traveling from outside New England to submit. However, due to travel costs we'd require anyone traveling a great distance to submit more than one proposal.
Presenters submitting more than one, well-crafted and detailed proposal will receive preferential consideration. You may be asked to present your workshop twice during the conference.
Please note the deadline for proposal submissions is September 2, 2013.
