Wow, can it really be February 1st, already? January just swooshed on by and before we know it, it will be time to pack our bags for the upcoming From Dreaming to Doing Conference in Buckeystown, Maryland on March 18-19th. Which brings me to this important reminder from our lovely co-regional adviser, Kathy McMillan regarding those who have payed or who plan on paying for a critique:
If you signed up for a critique, you are NOT guaranteed a slot with your chosen critiquer until all the following steps have been completed. Critique materials must be received by February 17; slots with desired critiquers will be filled in the order all materials are received.
1. You must register for the conference and payment must be received for the conference and the critique.
2. You must send an electronic copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. You must also send a printed copy of the manuscript to:
- Loretta Carlson
- MD/DE/WV SCBWI
- PO Box 421
- Bear, DE 19701
Critiques with agent Andrea Morrison are now closed, but many critique slots are still open with our other agents, editors, art directors, authors, and illustrators. This is a valuable opportunity to get detailed feedback on your work from professionals in the field.
Also, if you need some tips on how to get your submission in great shape, be sure to check out our past Conference Critique Workshop!
Since our As The Eraser Burns theme this month is From Dreaming to Doing Conference Prep, we will have many more tips coming your way. Until then, happy writing and drawing, everyone, and I can’t wait to see you at the conference!
