Have you ever wanted to attend the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) national conference in Los Angeles? You know you have. (I’ve been once. Best. Time. Ever. Great workshops and amazing networking. Good parties, too.)
“But ….,” you say. But it’s expensive. But I can’t justify the cost because my career hasn’t taken off yet. But it’s on the other side of the country and planes aren’t cheap. But… But…
Here’s your chance. The SCBWI Martha Weston grant awards $1,500 to one lucky winner each year. The money is to “fund the tuition, transportation, and hotel expenses incurred by attending the SCBWI Annual Conference in Los Angeles.” That means win the grant and you get the golden ticket to the conference that could change your life.
Applications need to be postmarked by June 10th, so hop to it. You can get more information from grant administrator and my buddy, Elizabeth Partridge, or on the SCBWI website.
Tomorrow I will tell you about the evil caterpillar I came up against this weekend. Right now go apply for that grant.
