Hurray! I'm registered for the New England Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators 2012 Conference! And double-hurray — it's going to be held in Springfield, Massachusetts — less than 45 minutes from my house!!
This will be my first NESCBWI conference. In January of 2011 I attended the big SCBWI Annual Winter Conference in New York and it was FANTASTIC. Really inspiring. I learned so much and met some really nice people. It was a great experience.
The New England Conference won't be until the end of April, but I'm already preparing for it. I just finished designing three new promo postcards to bring with me. One of them you can see at the beginning of this post.
Registration opened on Monday, January 23rd. Here is a link to the NESCWI conference page if you are interested in checking out the details.
