Jenny Bent's table is full, but all attendees can query her after the conference. Otherwise, she is closed to submissions. Her agency reps PB-Adult lit.

Linda Camacho has 4 seats left at her critique table. She too reps everything from MG-Adult. She also likes wordless PBs.

Carter Hasegawa has 4 seats left.

Last day for the early bird price is 5/31.

Cathy, what actually happens at the conference? I'm asking because the "Schedule" tab at the website doesn't lead anywhere.

As far as I can see, Carter Hasegawa is giving his presentation at 8 AM.  Then, for the rest of the day, attendees are grouped ten to a table led by one of the professionals, where the work of everyone who signed up for that table is critiqued. Is that right?

I think you might get more people signing up if there was more information about what's happening.
