Run, Don’t Walk: SCBWI 2010 Metro NY Professional Series Begins

The Metropolitan New York chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) sponsors a series of monthly seminars where “professionals from the publishing world share their wisdom and advice”.  Meetings are limited to 80 people, ensuring a more intimate setting.  Best part, the fee is $15 for members and $20 for non-members.  Certainly worth the train ride into the city.

The 2010-2011 season kicks off on October 12th with Senior Editor Cheryl Klein (Arthur Levine Books) presenting “twenty-five techniques that writers can use to revise their manuscripts”.

The series continues on November 9th with an Agents Panel including Stephen Barbara of Foundry Literary + Media, Jennifer Laughlin of Andrea Brown, and Marietta Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency.

I don’t need to remind you to purchase your tickets ahead of time (but I just did) to ensure you have a spot.  The series runs until June, so be sure to check out the Metro NY website over the next ten months.  All the dates are listed, and the topics will be updated as the dates get closer.

If you plan on attending in October, let me know.  We can meet for a drink before the event!  Unless, that’s not professional?  Hmmm….
