Shutta’s Answer to the Winter Doldrums—SCBWI conference scholarship

Shutta’s Answer to the Winter Doldrums—SCBWI conference scholarship

NYinwinter

 

Perk up your winter with a trip to the Big Apple! I am again offering to fund one full tuition to the SCBWI Winter conference in NY for one Michigan member. And our local MI-SCBWI will also cover the cost of airfare. What could be better than that? Check out the application and requirements at the MI-SCBWI site.  If it all sounds wonderful–and it is–click here for the application.

 

Why do I do this? It is my way of saying “thank you” to one of the best organizations for writers of children’s books. Thank you for the help and support I’ve been afforded over the years, and for the camaraderie and good times.

 

Now—get writing!

Austin bound this weekend to meet up with friends, get introduced to the lovely and talented Patrice Barton, and to do a program for writers in the Austin area. Patrice will also be getting her Crystal Kite award for illustrating MINE! (Oh, those darling babies!!!) Rarely do I get to meet  one of the illustrators of a book I’ve written. And this weekend, I not only get to meet her but we will also read together at a Friday night reception, and present together on Saturday. How cool is that?  I hope to have pics to post afterward.  Stay tuned.

 

Yeeee-haw!
