The 2014 SCBWI Florida Mid-Year Workshop is in three weeks. I can't wait--and I hope to see a lot of Blueboard friends there.

The Novel Intensive is full (there's a waiting list if you're interested), but everything else is still open. All the schedules and homework assignments are up on our website. There will be so many amazing hands-on activities. You can check out the schedules and assignments here: http://florida.scbwi.org//?page_id=803

And here's a link to the faculty bios: http://florida.scbwi.org//?page_id=783

There are still a few slots open for magazine story critiques with Margaret Mincks. Last year, one of her critiques led to the sale of a series!
