SCBWI LA, 2012

Another fantastic conference!

The keynotes by Ruta Sepetys and Gary Schmidt included heart-warming tales about fear and courage. They will always stick with me. Both of these authors were so generous to their audiences and very engaging speakers.

The session on visual storytelling by Jon Klassen was informative and clear. He articulated ways to symbolize conflict, tension, and character through the pictures—very helpful for picture book authors and illustrators.

The hippie hop was sooooooo much fun! A groovy time was had by all!
