|A teaser slide from my PowerPoint file.|
I'm gearing up to present at tonight's SCBWI Western Washington Professional Series meeting. The venue is Seattle Pacific University's Demaray Hall, Room 150, and the program starts at 7:00 p.m.
My topic is "Exploring Your Voice As a Children's Writer" — which, in short, is about connecting with that voice in your head (you know you have one) and using it for good. In other words, letting it guide you in developing your only-one-like-it-on-Earth personal writing style.
This will be an informal and interactive talk with the best type of audience out there: Fellow children's writers.
After my bit, author-illustrator Ben Clanton will discuss "Hands-On Picture Books: Making a Great Reread-Aloud."
Looking forward to it, and cutting off my coffee consumption NOW. So any jitters people detect tonight will be all me.
