Last year I was lucky enough to attend the SCBWI Western Washington conference and it was amazing. I blogged the heck out of it here. There was such an awesome lineup: Ellen Hopkins, Adam Rex--not to mention the cool agents and editors that I got to meet! It quickly became one of my favorite conferences. Not to mention I got to hang with some rocking authors from Portland and Seattle. :-)
And now... I'm going to be there this year as faculty!!! I get to do my first author panel!!!! I'm so insanely excited about this!!! I'll be on a panel about writing a series and also a local success panel. And I'll get to do manuscript critiques. This may sound lame, but I CRIED when I got the email. I was just... so honored.
This year's lineup is equaling exciting. Laini Taylor, Mitali Perkins, Jay Asher, Suzanne Selfors--and tons of agents and editors Oh, and me!
My first panel. *faints
