If you are looking for a writing conference to attend this summer, I highly recommend Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers (WIFYR) in Sandy, Utah. The conference runs June 18-22. Not only is the conference incredible, but the Utah writing community is amazing. I met most of my critique partners at WIFYR. Seriously something in the water there people. Great workshops with amazing instructors, fabulous speakers and panels. You can attend either the full day sessions or just the afternoon. Both are worthwhile. Check it out!
