A Twitter View of #NY14SCBWI

Like a photo album of words (with some pictures, too), twitter lays out snapshot moments from the 2014 SCBWI Winter Conference.

Between twitter, the inspirational quotes on tumblr

and The Official Conference Blog,

you can triangulate and get a taste of the conference experience.  And for those of us fortunate enough to have attended #NY14SCBWI, it's a way to re-live the highlights.

Here are some of those twitter highlights:
