I caved and decided that I must go to Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers this year, at least for the afternoon sessions. I’m moving back to Chicago in July and I don’t know when I’ll get to come visit again. I love the writing community in Utah and seriously, this conference is one of the best children’s writing workshops you can attend. Allie Condie, Holly Black, Brandon Mull, Carol Lynch Williams, editors from Disney Hyperion and Aladdin, and agent Mary Kole.
So I’ll be there Monday! If you’re going please let me know so we can actually meet!
