No illustrator track at Niagara Writer Retreat/Conference this year

A while back, I mentioned that I was going to be on the faculty at the  Niagara Retreat and Conference this coming May. Not enough illustrators signed up to warrant keeping the Illustrator track, so the conference has decided to drop that part of the programming. 

For those who signed up for my one-on-one Platform Critiques, I’ll still be honouring those via Skype chat.

Disappointed that I won’t be attending this year, but I still heartily recommend this event for anyone interested in writing for young people. Check out the all-star faculty:

Susan Rich: Editor-at-Large for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

Susan Hawk: The Bent Agency

Sara Zarr, YA author (From Debbie: I’m still hoping to get my Sara Zarr books autographed someday!)

Ellen Hopkins, YA author

Kimberley Griffiths-Little, MG and YA author

Lorin Oberweger, freelance editor

Roman White, director & author

Laura Biagi, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency Inc.
