One of the responsibilities (perks) of being a regional advisor for SCBWI is organizing conferences and workshops. That includes the newest incarnation of the SCBWI Europolitan Conference in Brussels. We’ve got some great faculty coming in May including Penguin Random House editors Kendra Levin and Natalie Doherty, from the US and UK respectively. I was lucky enough to “sit down” with them and ask their thoughts on publishing and the partnerships within it. If you’re interested, please join me over at Cynsations, author Cynthia Leitich Smith’s blog who was gracious enough to host us.
Being a regional advisor for SCBWI has many benefits, one is being asked to interview authors and coordinators for the upcoming Bologna Book Fair.
The first in my series of interviews, this week with author Kathleen Ahrens, who is also the fearless international regional advisor chairperson for SCBWI, is now featured over at Cynsations, Cynthia Leitich Smith’s must-read blog. Please stop by and say hello.
