Honored to Deliver Keynote at SCBWI 42nd Summer Conference


I’m honored to announce that I’ll be giving the “Market Report: An Up-to-the-Minute State of the Industry” keynote at the SCBWI 42nd Summer Conference in Los Angeles Aug 2 – 5. In fact, it’ll be a busy conference for me, as I’m also teaching the intensive “How to Build Your Own Teenager: Techniques for Writing Believable MG/YA Characters,” along with two breakouts: “The Read-Aloud Factor: Achieving Rhythm without Relying on Rhyme in Picture Books” and “Setting, Wherefore Art Thou?: The Surprising Benefits and How-To’s of Setting in MG/YA Fiction.” I’ll be doing one-on-one critiques, too! For info, check out the conference page.

One Response so far.

    Congratulations, Deborah! I am disappointed that I won’t be able to see it in person (or take your awesome breakout sessions) but I will follow it all on twitter! Congrats, again!
