We held our first preliminary planning meeting last Saturday for the 2014 Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers conference. It will be awesome! Our full committee meets in Mid-November and then we’ll start announcing details.
I can tell you now that James Dashner http://jamesdashner.com/ is our Keynote Speaker on Thursday, June 19, 2014, and a book signing will follow.
If you haven’t attended, WIFYR’s morning workshops are like a college writing course crammed into 5 days, a mini MFA as it were. Plus the afternoon sessions are amazing! One day mini-workshops covering specific topics will also be offered again this year so there is something for every writer. Check out the website often for updates. http://www.wifyr.com/sch.php
