Our 6th Annual SCBWI Conference Scholarship!
wHo can apply: YOU with your shiny SCBWI membership
(Make haste to www.scbwi.org to join/renew if needed)
wHaT: $1,000.00 toward conference tuition, manuscript or portfolio critique, and a bit of mad money during your LA stay.
wHeN: Conference runs from August 2 -5, 2013
wHeRe: The Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles CA
wHy: We are five very fortunate authors for children and young adults who have been generously mentored, guided and supported by a host of talented individuals. We can't think of a better way to thank them than by easing the way for others. The National Conference is a game-changer.
hOw: To enter, write at least one but no more than three haiku telling us why we should pick you for this year's conference. (A haiku is a three-line poem, featuring a total of 17 syllables: 5 in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 again in the third.) Have some fun with this!
(the three haiku can be one connected poem)
