Hey! I just wanted to shout out that a short blog post I wrote about training one’s ear to the music found in poems is up at the RhyPicBoMo site at: http://angiekarcher.wordpress.com/ . (That’s: Rhyming Picture Book Month site.) Scroll down a little below the information about SCBWI.
(And write a poem today to celebrate National Poetry Month!)
Shutta’s Scholarship Solution to the (upcoming) Winter Doldrums is Here Again!
If you are interested in attending the annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City but feel you can’t afford it—think again! With a little help you might find yourself at the Grand Hyatt in NY on a blustery wintry day. (Provided you are a member of the Michigan Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.)
For the fourth year in row, I am renewing my offer to pay the full early-bird registration fee for a Michigan SCBWI member to attend. The qualifying rules are listed on the application form which is posted on the MichKids SCBWI website and is now at my site off the “For Writer’s” page and on the sidebar.
The conference is Feb. 21-23, 2014. See the national SCBWI site at: http://www.scbwi.org for details about the conference. But start getting your chicks in line, now, to apply. You never know what magical thing might happen to you there!
Kelly Barson, a past winner said: “Ever since I joined SCBWI, I’ve wanted to attend a national conference. The timing seemed perfect for 2012, but my bank account disagreed. Shutta’s generous scholarship made my dream trip a reality.”
