Big Sur Writing Workshop for PB - YA
I wanted to spread the word about the Big Sur Fiction Writing Workshop happening here in California March 2nd-4th. It's a workshop for children's book writers (PB-YA), co-sponsored by the Henry Miller Memorial Library and Andrea Brown Literary Agency, in Big Sur, an absolutely gorgeous sliver of the central coast.
What I love about this conference is the small writer-to-faculty ratio, which is 5 to 1 or less, with a guarantee you'll work closely with at least three different faculty. The weekend is also put together as a package deal with lodging, meals (including tax and grats), and a cocktail reception included in the cost. They even set up roommates (in two-room units) and help coordinate carpooling when possible.
This year's faculty includes:
Brandy Rivers, literary manager/producer at Magnet Management.
Lisa Yoskowitz, editor at Disney-Hyperion.
Sharyn November, senior editor at Viking Children's Books.
Julie Romeis, executive editor at Chronicle Books.
Catherine Ryan Hyde, multi-published children's book author.
Eric J. Adams, author, film producer, screenwriter, and journalist.
Plus eight Andrea Brown agents:
Jaime Weiss Chilton
The deadline to register is February 10th and I've heard from Mike Scutari at Henry Miller that they still have some open spots. You can check out the website here and some workshop success stories here.
Hope you consider going, but if you can't make it this year put it down for 2013!
