SCBWI 39th Annual Summer Conference: Have you registered yet?

Registration for the most awesome conference on the planet has been up and rockin' for 2 hours now. Have you added your name to the list of attendees?

This truly is my favorite conference around for many reasons! Fellow member of Team Blog, Jaime Temairik, listed 5 reasons you should go, I thought I'd throw in 5 more.

1. Have you seen the keynote lineup?

MT Anderson
Marion Dane Bauer
Ashley Bryan
Gennifer Choldenko
Paul Fleishman
Gordon Korman
Gail Carson Levine
EB Lewis
Loren Long
Carolyn Mackler
Rubin Pfeffer
Jon Scieszka
Rachel Vail

Really now!

And you can't BELIEVE how many more. Check out the entire faculty HERE.

2. The Saturday night gala is a blast! This year's theme is "Heart and Soul." It's my favorite party of the year.

3. It's four full days, friends. Four! There is more goodness than even Team Blog can keep up with. It is amazing!

4. The editors and agents are out of the office. So, just like you, it's a great chance for them to get away from home, hang out, and have cocktail with children's book friends.

5. Team Blog wants to meet you. I want to meet you. Or see you to see you again. So, join us. We'll raise a glass together and toast to the many success that will result from a fantastic conference experience.

You know you want to.

Here's the link to register. I'm going there RIGHT NOW!
