Springmingle '08!!

     The Spring Conference for the Southeastern region of the SCBWI (Southern Breeze) is quickly approaching. I am actually going to do a skit for the opening entertainment - gads! (Hence the purchase of the lovely bunny slippers.)
     Anyhow, there are still a few openings left. (Shocking, as the last few years were sold out!) So here's the info if you know anybody who may be interested – maybe YOU!

Book Writing & Illustrating Seminar!
Springmingle ‘08 • February 22-24
Sponsored by The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators

This is sure to be a spectacular seminar! The publishing houses represented acquire everything from picture books, MG books and YA novels, to poetry written by adults for kids – and they are looking for new talent!

Featured SM08 speakers include:
- Editor Robin Tordini of Henry Holt (NY)
Ms. Tordini acquires genres from picture books to young adult novels. She says, "Naturally, I’m always looking for interesting manuscripts and illustrations, too."

- Editor Jennifer Wingertzahn of Clarion Books (NY)
Ms. Wingertzahn acquires picture books, novels and poetry for all ages. She "hopes to find new talent" at SM08!

- Art Director Martha Rago of Harper Collins (NY)
This company and its many imprints publish 600 titles per year in various genres. HarperCollins is a CLOSED house, but Ms. Rago will accept illustration submissions from SM08 attendees! Illustrators – get those portfolios ready for display!

- Deborah Wiles, Award Winning Author and Keynote Speaker (Atlanta, GA)
She’ll share her winning inside story. Visit her website – just look at that list of awards!

- Diane Capriola, co-owner of the bookstore Little Shop of Stories (Decatur, GA)
This bookstore has been nominated for several awards. Hear inside tips from a successful bookseller’s perspective!
