Are you published, but need help with marketing your books? There's a workshop for that!
Are you brand new to the kidlit world and don't know where to start? There's a workshop for that!
Have you had trouble fleshing out a main character, atagonist or plot for your story? There are several worshops for that!
And we've got more than 50 faculty members compiled of editors, agents, art directors, librarians and author/illustrator speakers joining us this year, and more than 70 workshops to choose from. Panels, pitching sessions, keynotes, one-on-one critiques, craft workshops, lectures, intensives, a bookfair, portfolio display, juried art show, and oodles of networking opportunities, oh my!
