NJ SCBWI Conference Update

If you’re still on the fence about attending the NJ SCBWI Conference, maybe these updates will sway you:

Marietta Zacker, of the Nancy Gallt Agency will join the Humor Intensive on Friday June 3rd.  Attendees will work on writing humor with authors Audrey Vernick and Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich for most of the workshop, while Marietta critiques the first three pages and one page synopsis of a work-in-progress for each person in the session. This Intensive is made up of a small group of authors.  During the break participants will have time to talk with Marietta and she will join the group during the last hour, so attendees can read the results of what they wrote during the workshop.  She will comment on the results.  Participants will receive their work-in-progress back by the end of the workshop.

Mary Kole has joined the Characterization Intensive and will help the small group of attendees with their writing excercises and in addition, she will critique your first page, synopsis from one of your manuscripts, help with the query letter, listen to the pitch you put together for the manuscript, and give you pointers.

**You must attend the full conference to participate in either of these intensives.**

In addition, there will be a drawing during the workshop, “Three Sirens Talk About the Side Road to Success” with Agent Natalie Fischer, and authors Natalie Zaman, and Charlotte Bennardo. At the end of the session 22 winners will be drawn. The prizes are: a critique of the first five pages by Natalie and Charlotte for six winners each. Agent Natalie Fischer will pick ten winners and critique their first 3-pages.

Time is short to sign up for the conference.
