I had another informative and inspirational weekend at the annual New Jersey Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Conference in Princeton, NJ this past weekend. Lots of opportunities to reconnect with writer friends and make new ones. Workshops on perfecting craft, Keynotes from Author/Illustrator, DENISE FLEMING, Agent/Author JOHN CUSICK, and a report on the state of children’s publishing. (doing well, we’re happy to hear). Plus lots of time for sharing success stories. An exhausting but always motivating event. Here are some highlights in photos.
Another awesome weekend of writing and social connection. Thanks NJSCBWI. You Rock!
I’ve been loving all the photos of the NJSCBWI conference! I’ve heard that it’s an awesome one. Maybe one day I’ll stop by in lieu of the NYC one. 🙂
You would NOT be disappointed, Teresa. We are a very friendly and supportive “tribe”.
I can tell! 🙂
It was wonderful to meet you in New Jersey, Darlene! Your blog looks great, too!
Great to meet you as well, Kirsti. Look forward to keeping in touch and having you do a guest post here.
Great pictures Darlene! I was so happy to be able to catch up with you. There seemed to be a lot of love and mutual admiration all around this year. Happy writing and happy summer! – Jen Reinharz :-).
Best of everything in writing and beyond for you Jennifer. Can’t wait to hear about your award presentation. Send a photo! So great to see you and spend some time together. XO
Hi Darlene! So happy to meet you and share a lunch table at NJ SCBWI. Will keep in touch by following your blog and hope to see you again at another event!

I just love seeing these pics, Darlene, and it was great seeing you, too! 😀 And tell me, since my brain’s not pulling it up–or perhaps I just don’t know–but what’s the LRA Club? 😀
The LRA club is the Liza Royce Agency followers and honorary members. Some agented with Liza and others just friends.
Ah ha! Then consider me part of that little club 🙂
😀 😀 😀
I just heard about your organization, and was thinking about becoming a member. I live in the Dallas tx area. I am an illustrator, and my website is at http://www.idrawstuffstudio.net. Do you all think it would be good for me to join? I do all kinds of art styles. 🙂
If you are seriously interested in illustrating children’s books, it would be beneficial. You need to join the National site and then you can attend the local chapters http://www.scbwi.org Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed your comic illustrations on your website.
