Summer Conference in Los Angeles – Early Bird Registration About to End!





















Early registration for the Summer Conference is set to end after July 11.  Once early registration ends, Conference tuition increases to $575, so register soon!

The Summer Conference has a powerful line-up of industry luminaries speaking on all aspects of writing and illustrating for children and young adults. Speakers include Newbery Medal winners Lois Lowry and Erin Entrada Kelly, as well as Libba Bray, Daniel Jose Older, Lynda Mullaly Hunt, Andrea & Brian Pinkney, Mike Curato, Eliza Wheeler, Marc Brown, Carolyn Mackler, Stephanie Garber, Ibi Zoboi and more.

This year’s schedule features industry panels with agents and editors; a whopping seventy-two breakout sessions; and optional, full-day intensives for writers, illustrators, and published members. And there is still an opportunity to get your writing in front of industry professionals. Though the manuscript and portfolio critiques are completely full, there are a handful of spots left in A Closer Look Intensive, an intensive designed for those seeking feedback on their writing from an editor or agent.
