SCBWI Western Washington's 4th annual fall retreat (November 5-7) is on its way and the deadline to apply and get your materials in is this September 27th.
I organize and run this event for our amazing Western Washington region and this year is sure to be great. The wonderful thing about this retreat is that it's small and intimate (with no more than 50 attendees), and this year we welcome two executive editors: Nancy Mercardo, Roaring Brook Press and Jill Santopolo, Philomel Books. Between the both of them they are a mass of experience, knowledge, and expertise. (Many of you know Nancy as @editorgurl on Twitter.) Personally, I can't wait to soak up as much as I can from them.
So much to look forward to:
- amazing knowledge shared in a small group setting with our talented editors
- beautiful location at the Alderbrook Resort and Spa (check it out)
- delicious food
- awesome people
