SCBWI's 10th annual NYC conference is under way. I've attended once in the past and have always wanted to go back. It's a great weekend. Full of useful information, packed with interesting peers, and buzzing with a wonderful positive energy. Plus, you're just steps — or a quick cab ride — from Broadway, jazz clubs, and too many restaurants.
I couldn't go this year. I am, however, enjoying the conference blog right now. CWIM's Alice Pope is blogging from the floor, keeping everyone updated on presentations and other happenings. It's perfect! I'm sitting here in my West Coast living room still drinking my morning coffee, and after just 20 minutes of reading I'm all caught up on the goings-on. It's not the same as being there. But it's still pretty cool. The best part is that I can go about my Saturday and then check back in later to see what I've missed.
Give it a try!
