Our brains are still spinning from our weekend in New York City where we attended our first ever Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Annual Winter Conference!
We listened to some fabulous speeches by insanely famous authors and illustrators, including Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Hervé Tullet and recent Newbery Medal winner, Kwame Alexander. We met fellow writers and illustrators from our regions, ate mashed potatoes out of fancy martini glasses and gained a lot of insight into the children’s book industry.
The SCBWI is such a supportive and encouraging community and we are so excited to be new members. We have a lot of work ahead of us to get Fascinating Animals from A to Z out there but we can't wait to get started.
