I decided to dedicate one day a week to getting up to date on fun, interesting and informative happenings within the children's literature world. So let's press on, if anyone missed it Agent Mary Kole from kidlit.com did a tweeter chat this past Thursday night.
Mary fielded questions about writing/publishing and her Kidlit Novel Beginnings Contest.
SCBWI and CBI are chalk full of excellence resources for children's writers and cover everything from picture books to YA. Registration is still open for the SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City held on Jan 29th-Jan 31st, which is supposed to rock. This would be a fantastic conference for those that can squeeze it in and swing the air fare.
If you are on the look out for another great place to connect with other children's writers- the blue boards aka Children's Writers and Illustrators Message Boards are always a good time.
