On the Road to Sparkling Children’s Literature: September 2014

It’s July 22nd and I have one question:

Have you signed up for our region’s conference “On the Road to Sparkling Children’s Literature”? Yeah, I know it’s only been open for one day, but really, what are you waiting for?

Held on September 20 and 21, 2014 at the Claggett Conference Center in Buckeystown, Maryland, this will be a one-day event on Saturday with separate intensives on Sunday. Registration for the one-day conference is required before registering for the intensives. Critiques will also be available (registration for the one-day conference is also required to receive a critique).
