Tip Tuesday #48 - SCBWI!

My tip this Tuesday (on Wednesday) is... go to a SCBWI international conference! It was a truly great experience. I have a ton to do this week, but I'll try to find time in the upcoming weeks to share some of the notes I took.  Definitely check out the Official SCBWI Conference Blog if you haven't already.  They've pretty much got it covered. 

Some photos!

If you shared pictures or notes on your blog, please let me know in the comments!

It looks like you had a fun time! Forgive me if I'm missing something I should have known already, but what was the theme behind all the red?

Jonathon Arntson said...

You're a photogenic bunch and all this makes me so happy!

My favorite part of reading the SCBWI posts are the candid pictures! That is what really makes you feel like you were there. (And they didn't post too many on the official blog, so it's cool to see them here!)

wish I could have been there!


Sherrie Petersen said...

I'm still on a high from the whole thing. It's such a great conference. And besides all the wonderful craft information, I love getting to meet so many bloggers in person!

Heather said...

I agree, this was an awesome conference!

I've posted a few notes so far, and I'm going to continue posting notes throughout the week!

Lisa Nowak said...

Good to see you met Suzanne Young. She's a blast, isn't she? I wish I could have been there.

Sara {Rhapsody and Chaos} said...

PS I'll post pics on Monday or so and let you know =)

I was there and had a fantastic time! I have been writing up some of my notes and thoughts on my blog at bookgal77.com. Not all done yet, but I did take a whole notebook full of notes, make some great new writing buddies, and just relish in the written word.
