Wait until you see the amazing faculty for the SCBWI-FL Regional Conference!

I sent out the latest FL SCBWI listserv last night, and love being able to share fantastic news for our members, market info, and a list of the incredible faculty who will be participating in the 2012 FL SCBWI Regional Conference in Miami on January 13 – 15.  Just wait until you see the amazing line-up!  I've been a conference addict since I attended my first one in 2005.  It's always incredible to spend time with others who love children's books as much as I do--and the information and inspiration I come home with is priceless!  My writing has leaped up at least one level thanks to new info and feedback I received at the Orlando Workshop, and I can't wait to see what new tools I'll bring home with me from Miami.  

I'll share more details about intensives and the conference theme soon, and hope to see many of my online friends in Miami!  Here's the faculty list:
