Hard to believe, but it's that time of year again—yep, the Oregon SCBWI Conference is coming up! A usual, there will be loads of talented authors, agents, and editors there to share their knowledge. And gobs of opportunities for conference veterans and newbies—I've got a one-on-one manuscript consultation and a roundtable critique scheduled. The conference is being held at the Holiday Inn in Wilsonville again this year. From what I hear, from now on it's going to be a bi-annual event, so I'd take advantage if I were you. In fact, you only have four days left to register—last day is May 8! I'm going both Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22. Hope to see you there!
