Cultivate Your Creative Mind
There's something about spending the weekend with other children's writers and illustrators. Add to that, hearing the revision wisdom of premier speaker, Emma Dryden, and you have a period of time that will be remembered by me and SCBWI-Oklahoma for years.
This weekend couldn't have happened at a better time for me. I just finished the first draft of another middle grade novel. The strategies Emma shared with us will be priceless in the revision of my work.
Yes, it's difficult to be away from home for a weekend. It takes money to register, travel, and sleep when you attend an event like this. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
If you write or illustrate for children, do an on-line search for your local SCBWI Region. They are all over the world. If you can't travel to events, check out all the webinars that are scheduled throughout the country. Inexpensive registration and easy to access. Go to scbwi.org to check them out.
