NJSCBWI 2016: Rocks It Again!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of reconnecting with my writing “tribe” at our annual conference in Princeton NJ.  The NJ chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (NJSCBWI) is always a great time to learn techniques for improving the craft of writing for children.  It’s also the best time to pitch projects to agents and editors who are in attendance…each specifically looking for new talent.

We got to meet many new faces and reconnect with familiar ones.

It was a great weekend and always leaves me re-energized to start new projects and edit old ones based on critiques gotten from those in attendance. Here are just a few of the highlights:
