NJSCBWI Conference-What an Amazing Weekend!

I just returned home from the annual New Jersey Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator’s Conference (NJSCBWI)  in Princeton.  What an inspiring and motivating weekend surrounded by the best agents, editors and writer’s of children’s books.  There were numerous workshops to perfect the craft of writing, as well as A Keynote Address by writer/illustrator PETER BROWN, a warm, funny and talented man.

New Author TARA LAZAR gave an inspirational talk about the Myth  of Great Divide between those published and those not and how our NJ group of talented people have always helped and encouraged each other on our writing journey.

There were reunions with writer friends and new bonds made with first-timers.  Best of all, I left with a new energy and purpose to dive into writing projects and  keep on sending my stories out into the world.
