There is nothing like a great conference to recharge the batteries that power creativity.
Do you have a favorite conference or retreat that you find inspiring and energizing? I love the annual SCBWI conference in LA. This year is the 40th Anniversary Conference, which means an extra sprinkling of celebration and excitement. I’ll be flying out to LA tomorrow. I am buzzing about this event for a bunch of reasons.
To begin with, this conference is promising keynotes and workshops by best-selling authors such as Laurie Halse Anderson, Libba Bray, John Green, and Norton Juster, just to name a few of the talented people that will be sharing their wisdom and insights. And, of course, there is the poolside party on Saturday night and the Golden Kite Awards Luncheon on Sunday. Fun!
Want to be part of the excitement even if you can’t make it to the conference? Here are a few ways you can join in:
You can follow the conference on Twitter by using the hash tag #LA11SCBWI .
You can also read the conference blog. SCBWI’S TEAM BLOG will be blogging live from the conference. Here’s the link: http://scbwiconference.blogspot.com/
If you happen to be at the conference and spot me (don't be surprised if it's in line at the hotel lobby Starbucks), please elbow me and say “hi”! It would be great to meet face to face (not that there’s anything wrong with blog to blog).
That's a bit about my most delicious get-away. I’d love to hear about your favorite conferences or retreats or ways that you recharge your creative batteries. Do tell!
