SCBWI (the Society of Children’s Book Authors & Illustrators) is going virtual with its annual summer conference — they’re calling it the Summer Spectacular and it is indeed spectacular!
10 keynotes with children lit luminaries, an agents panel, & an editors panel, plus nightly live twitter chat socials, an online member book sale, a meme contest, door prizes, and a up-to-the-minute market report (by me ? ) with exclusive up-to-the-minute information available only to conference attendees. All for $100 ($175 nonmembers; you don’t have to be a member to attend!) and you can view the keynotes and panels the whole month of August.
You can add consultations: portfolio, manuscript, career, social media.
Seriously, check out the keynote lineup. I’m registering as soon as it opens, on May 13, 10amPT. https://www.scbwi.org/events/scbwi-summer-spectacular-2020/
