Canada SCBWI Conference in Burnaby BC
« on: April 15, 2012, 09:54 AM »
This conference is in Burnaby, BC, Canada. It starts on May 5. I was wondering if there were any other people in my area that might be attending? Or even other people here that might attend this conference.  It's $100 for members and $110 for non-members. http://www.scbwicanada.org/west/events.html

I was really excited to find out there is a conference in my area. I'm so excited!
I am strongly considering going to this conference. I know it's last minute, but I don't want to wait a whole year to go to a conference where I can meet all kinds of writers and illustrators. It is a good chunk of money too. I don't mind shelling it out, but I'm not sure if I'm quite ready.

I'd like to do a portfolio critique, but I'm a bit scared. I have 3 things I'm working on right now. It would be a big push to get them done and likely make prints of them and anything else I've worked on lately. This and making a decent website.  :faint I think I can do it, though.

It sounds like a great conference!!!

 I live too far away to attend, but I've heard great things about the Canada West chapter.

I don't know about this conference, but if you're in BC, there is a great conference every October in Surrey!

Too bad Angela, hopefully there are lots near where you live.

I think I'll go to that one too, but it's not until October! I'm going to go to this one as long as my registration fee can get there in a reasonable amount of time.

I get to go, I get to go! They cashed my cheque! I'm sure I'll get an email confirmation or something soon. I was a bit worried, because I have bad luck with mail. Things tend to take weeks to go just a few cities away. I'm so excited I could squee!
