Free Event Open to All SCBWI Members

On the afternoon of November 5th, we are having a Craft Day and booksigning with editor Cheryl Klein from Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine.  Cheryl will conduct a two hour writing class with members, followed by a booksigning for people who want to purchase her new book SECOND SIGHT.  This will be offered free to any SCBWI member.  Space is limited, so you will have to sign up to reserve a spot and at some point we may have to close the doors.  Anyone who wants to stay and have dinner with Cheryl after the booksigning can do so, but dinner is not being offered for free.

The following day, November 6th, Cheryl will participate in our Mentoring Workshop and do one-on-one critiques along with three other agents and editors that attend.  At the same time, we will have our semi-annual Illustrators’ Day with two Art Directors.

It is all taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton, NJ.  I will be posting more info about Cheryl’s class, the discount price to stay overnight at the hotel, and price of November 6th programs.  I will announce other agents and editors as I confirm them and provide all the details after the conference.  I just wanted you to know so you could save the date. 

Hope you find this exciting.  It is a way to reward you for supporting the NJSCBWI.

Thank you!

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy

    • Donna,

      I have to start a list for Laurie, so we can keep track of people who want to sign up. Right now, I am up to my eyeballs in lists of things to get down for the conference. Thank you for all you are doing on your end.

  2. Dear Kathy, I’m a SCBWI member, but I live in Aruba. I have Cheryl Klein’s Second Sight book, it arrived yesterday and I’m reading and loving it already. I would love to participate, but I’m always too far away and unable to participate in any of these events. Is there a possibility I can join in via Skype? For me, it’s all about the information. I live on a small island and the only way I can grow as a writer is, if I can get information from abroad. I hope you can help me out, I would really appreciate it.
    Sunny regards from Aruba,
    Liliana

    • Liliana,

      I will have to ask Cheryl about that. I’ll ask when I talk to her.

      A trip to NYC is always fun. It might be nice change from paradise. We’d love to see you.

    • Mary,

      Of course! What would it be without you there? Bring the book with you and get her to sign it.

      See you soon,

      Kathy

  5. Kathy, it’s good to remember there are days AFTER the conference 🙂 Maybe it would be good to put this up again at that time, so you can worry about a list THEN 🙂

    And you know I’m happy to help. Considering all you guys do to put this together and make it work, you deserve all the help you can get!

  6. Wow, that sounds exciting! I’ll mark my calendar and, as Kathy said, let’s get through the June conference first. (Donna, I guess you’re now in charge of the list for Cheryl’s event, huh?!!)
