We're breaking out the wine, cheese, and chocolate. It's that time of year again!
Time for my writing critique group (the Goalies) to host Raleigh's annual SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators) networking event at Quail Ridge books!
All local childrens'/YA authors and Illustrators are encouraged to attend. So are new people interested in learning more about the writing craft.
We'd love to see YOU there!
Wake County's own Kelly Starling Lyons will be this year's guest speaker. She's written several childrens/middle grade books, including "One Million Men and Me," a wonderful picture book about a little girl attending the 1990s' "Million Men March" on Washington -- an event that Kelly covered, as a reporter.
Kelly will share how she pulls her stories from actual life, and will give guidance on how other writers can do the same.
Come meet your fellow Triangle North Carolina authors/illustrators -- those with multiple works on bookstore shelves, and those who are just beginning to fall in love with our craft!
2pm, Sunday, May 17th, 2009. Quail Ridge Books and Music. Raleigh, NC.
See you there! Bring a friend and come early. Seats go fast.
