What a conference we had last weekend. The speakers included Bruce Coville, Maghan Day, editor from Holiday House, D'Anne Love, Sid Fleischman, Deborah Hopkinson, Deborah Kaplan, art director, Lin Oliver, Michael Stearns, ed.director at Harper Collins, Paul Rodeen, agent, Lisa Yee, and Cheryl Zach. It was so wonderful to listen to these professionals and to have them share with us some of their wisdom. I had a great time. Our RA, Connie H. did out did herself by putting this slate of speakers together for us.
I attended a breakout session by Lin Oliver on dialog. It was very good and I am anxious to apply her suggestions to my writing.
Kimm, I understand you were at out conference but I never had a chance to meet you.
