A Fun and Informative Writing Conference in Montana!

You’re invited to come to Montana for our Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators “Writing Forward Progress” Conference on October 13 – 15 in Billings, Montana! It’s a beautiful time of year here in the mountains – October is my favorite month. Billings is a short drive away from Yellowstone Park, and the airport has great connections from everywhere. You won’t want to miss this intimate and instructive gathering, with a chance to get a professional critique (a few spots left!) and vie for our new mentorship program.

We’re bringing in Agent Linda Camacho from Prospect Agency, Editor Kait Feldmann from Scholastic, and Creative Director Heather Kindseth Wutschke from Capstone. They will be presenting, and leading one-on-one critiques. We also have fun Field Trips to choose from, intensive craft workshops with me and Kent Davis, the kickoff of our new mentorship program, time to make connections, and a book signing party. Come join us for a wonderful weekend of Writing Forward Progress!
